HARRISBURG, Pa. For some residents of this small city, there was something familiar about Foxconns recently announced plan to hire up to 50,000 U.S. workers, one of the many hiring pledges from companies rounded up by President Trump in the first weeks of his administration.
The only difference was the scale.
In 2013, Foxconns chairman sent a jolt through this state capital when he said his company best known for making Apple iPhones in China would invest $30 million and hire 500 workers for a new high-tech factory in central Pennsylvania.
Locals were giddy. Foxconn had a small office here, but this seemed like the start of an entire new industry. Pennsylvanias governor boasted about the deal. The Brookings Institution think tank hailed Foxconns decision as a sign of U.S. manufacturings strength.
Apple said it has temporarily stopped buying cobalt mined by hand in Congo while it continues to deal with problems with child labor and harsh work conditions.
A Washington Post investigation last year detailed abuses in Congos artisanal cobalt supply chain, showing how miners including children labored in hazardous, even deadly, conditions. Amnesty International and other human rights groups also have alleged problems. Earlier this week, British broadcaster Sky News published an investigation that alleged continued problems in the cobalt supply chain.
The Post connected this troubling trade to Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Company, a Chinese firm that is the largest buyer of artisanal cobalt in Congo and whose minerals are used in Apple products.
