This is a brief documentary made by people concerned about working conditions at Foxconn, the Taiwanese company subcontracted by Apple and others to assemble electronic devices.
Foxconn has 1 million employees – comparable to McDonald’s which has 1.5 million worldwide. About half of them work in Longhua Science & Technology Park, a single mega-factory in Shenzhen on China’s border with Hong Kong.
In early 2010 a number of Foxconn employees attempted suicide.
The makers of this video are concerned representatives of Hong Kong and mainland universities. They travel to the factory to enquire about the workers’ conditions, interviewing one young woman who survived her attempted suicide.
