Download audio (MP3)

Apple says it's taking steps to address labor law violations by some of its foreign suppliers. The Cupertino-based company says audits of 102 facilities conducted last year found more than a dozen serious violations of labor laws or Apple's own rules. Violations included the use of underage labor. Also, disgruntled Bay Area bricklayers and their assistants -- also known as hod carriers -- are demanding greater protection from the U.S. Department of Labor.
