lseltzer writes: Mike Daisey's monologue performance challenges Apple customers and techies in general to think about the abusive conditions under which their products are made. "The facility is a high-tech Dickensian workhouse where underage (down to 13 year olds) are made to perform simple, repetitive actions over and over again through brutally-long shifts." Daisey describes the environment at Foxconn in Shenzhen during the string of suicides there. But how much of this argument is true and how much is just polemic? IS a bad job better than no job at all? Millions of Chinese seem to think so.
