Undercover report at FOXCONN factory

Keep in mind that the reporter went in with an agenda to make a story, so don't expect a "balanced" opinion piece.

iPhones and shit are made with modern day slave labour, it's good to remember that. I hate the way that Steve Jobs is thought of as a god, when Apple has largely got rich from exploiting people on the other side of the world to the USA.

My Chinese gf was 10 minutes late for work at her job in an electronics factory - she lost a whole load of money from her pay packet as a result. On top of that, the canteen food is shit!!!
In February 2013 I quit my boring job and now I'm Happier Abroad...

I't not just the iPhone that's made by Foxconn. They make phones for Samsung too and they build the XBox for microsoft and they also build the amazon kindle fire. I also think Foxconn will build the Microsoft tablet too.
