new report from China Labor Watch accuses Foxconn of worker abuse, poor pay and imposing long hours on employees who make popular Amazon devices. Amazon said in response that it has opened an investigation.

The report marks the organization’s second critical examination of the factory in more than a year. China Labor Watch, a New York City-based non-profit group, said it found numerous violations at Foxconn’s Hengyang factory in eastern China, where it makes the Amazon Echo, Kindle and tablets. The organization interviewed employees and obtained photos from the facility. It said it discovered that Foxconn relies on more than 1,500 interns aged between 16 and 18 to work 10-hour days and six days a week. The hours and the number of interns it employs violate Chinese labor laws, the group said.
