Back in December, Apple announced it was tracking more than 1 million employees as of March 2013, which resulted in compliance dipping to 97% and dropping to 96% in April, but as of May it appears compliance has reached a high of 99%. Last month the Fair Labor Association released its second report on Apple’s Foxconn facilities and determined the latter had completed 98.3 of a proposed action plan to better working conditions.
