Undercover reporter details work at Foxconn's iPhone plant
On the eve of the unveiling of the iPhone 5, the Shanghai Evening Post published an insider report of what it's like to work at Foxconn's Tai Yuan factory assembling the device. And while it could be worse, the conditions aren't pretty.
The story is told by a Shanghai Evening Post reporter who went undercover, got a job at the plant, and then kept a diary of his life while working there for 10 days. His article was translated and summarized in English by MIC Gadget.
After going through an intensive seven-day orientation -- during which he was shown the packed, dirty dorms where he lived and massive dining halls where he ate, along with how to assemble his portion of the iPhone 5 -- he began work.
