Wonder how your wonder iPad tablet was made and how the factory looks like?
Apple has given permission to Rob Schmitz of Marketplace to produce a short video documentary of how Foxconn workers in China build and assemble the iPads.
This video highlights iPad manufacturing line and Foxconn’s workers life in general. Despite the average wage of just US$14/day to produce this gadget, many Chinese migrant workers are still flocking to these factories to apply for work.
A series of reports from Schmitz and Marketplace on the “Apple Economy” reveal more about Foxconn and the true nature of factory working conditions in China. Hopefully this will give you some ideas of behind the scenes before this device reached your hands.
