Foxconn quarterly profits have dipped by 39 percent

The giant Taiwan-based electronics company is also under fire for illegal labor practices again overseas.

Foxconn, associated in the past with questionable worker conditions, is facing new criticism for using teenagers working overtime illegally to assembly the new iPhone 10 models.

High school students, according to a new report, are getting forced to routinely work 11-hour days, violating even China's policies for overtime.

The 17- to 19-year-old students were apparently told three-month stints at Foxconn were required.

Foxconn quarterly profits have dipped by 39 percent.

The manufacturer will pocket $3 billion in taxpayer incentives to build a giant factory in Wisconsin.
