Who Are These People?
To mark the 5th anniversary of the iPhone, an excerpt from Mike Daisey's one-man show wherein Daisey - performer, investigative journalist and "worshipper in the cult of Apple" - began to wonder "where all our crap comes from," and travelled to the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China to talk to workers and find out. A great piece from Ira Glass' This American Life.
Update: Up to 300 workers at another Foxconn plant last week threatened to commit suicide over a pay dispute. Who are these people: Desperate.
