New iPhone - Undercover reporter details work at Foxconn's iPhone plant

Post by Guest on Wed Sep 12, 2012 6:34 am

After working a 10-day secret stint as an iPhone assembler, a Chinese journalist tells his story of long hours, little pay, and what it takes to make the device.

I had read an article that Foxconn had also forced Chinese school kids to work for them. I will try to find it.

In China there are about 200 million people who are trying to move to the urban industrialized areas as a means of upward mobility.....

The rest are what we would call "backwater" people being left out of China's "economic miracle" the same goes for India....There is even a larger mass of people world wide whose standard of living is stagnant or receding....

The "lucky" ones in China and India are working in pre-1900's working conditions...Victorian Times had there own "trickle down" economic policy...

at that time it was called something like "carrot and stick" or something but the point is THAT policy was decried then as unjust, and now we have it again since Reagan.....

Churchill confessed to Roosevelt that the English had turned world economic domination over to the USA, but he could not admit that to the English people....political suicide....

There are many parallels here as the Chinese and India appear to be using less restricted free-market behavior to overwhelm the US, and we will not acknowledged it for what it is....

of course this doesn't affect the big movers and shakers as they profit either way...

Why is Apple so highly regarded here in America? They are getting richer and richer at the expense of human lives. Workers in China have to sign No Suicide contracts because their working conditions are so deplorable!

Why are people still buying their product??

Because, notwithstanding the inhuman conditions in which the iPhone is built, it is indeed a technological masterpiece.

Apple is the richest company in the world. There is NO REASON that they cannot spend a few billion to train Americans and bring those jobs back here!!!! More Americans making decent wages will result in higher sales for Apple. By investing in America, Apple would also be investing in their own company. I really don't think these poor Chinese slaves who they employ now could save enough money in a lifetime to even by an iPod Touch!! Greed! I'll stick to tin cans and a string!

tiya, please calm down. I'm the one that started this thread based off of the injustice. Unfortunately the economics of the iPhone production, if shifted to our country, would cause the iPhone to cost more than $2,000 per unit.

These are the sad facts of today's market. We let it happen. Don't be mad at me.

p.s. what's your can number? Very Happy

I dig. Probably to maximize throughput fibre string should be used! Basketball

So we allow a company like Apple to take advantage of their Chinese workers to keep iPhones affordable? It's going to come back and bite them in the a** when other companies follow their lead and outsource everything. Who is going to have the $$$$ to buy an iPhone, Pad, Pod....? The 1%, that's it! Walmart is another slave wage outsourcing American company that should be boycotted too. The giant, mega- profit companies put us in the situation we are in today!

Have to agree with you on this one....I've seen what Walmart can do to manufacturing businesses that have been around for many many years ...they want to purchase the product that is manufactured for less than what it costs to make it...thus screwing the manufacturer....which is why my town that used to be called "Plastic City" is now a bedroom with no manufacturers.
