From Macworld UK,
- Apple's iPods are made by mainly female workers who earn as little as £27 per month
- In one of the factories, i.e. Foxconn's Longhua plant, 200,000 workers, a population bigger than Newcastle, is hired to make iPod.
- The same workers (above) live in dormitories that house 100 people, and…
- visitors from the outside world are not permitted.
- Workers toil for 15-hours a day
- Another factory in Suzhou, Shanghai, makes iPod shuffles. The workers are housed outside the plant, and earn £54 per month – but they must pay for their accommodation and food, "which takes up half their salaries", the report observes.
