Reporter allegedly goes undercover to work at Foxconn, assembling Apple iPhone
The reporter said sleeping conditions at Foxconn's dorms were a "nightmare" citing dirty living conditions, barnyard smells and an infestation of cockroaches. Trash was piled up in front of dorm rooms. Workers entering and exiting the factory floor pass through metal detectors to prevent stealing. Anyone caught with something they shouldn't have is immediately fired.
On the assembly line, the reporter's job entailed marking areas of the Apple iPhone's back cover where masking tape would be applied before painting. The reporter was reprimanded by a supervisor for marking too much of the back with the marker. Another worker was chewed out for going too slowly. "This is the new unleashed iPhone 5 back plate, you should be honored having the chance to produce it," said the supervisor to the sluggish worker.
There is two sides to each story. Considering that none of the undercover reporter's stories have been verified, we suggest that you keep an open mind about this subject.
