Late last year, Joel Johnson of WIRED and Gizmodo had the opportunity to travel to Shenzen in China to report on Foxconn. Foxconn has revenues of nearly $60 billion a year and makes products under contract for companies including Apple, Amazon, Cisco, HP, Dell, Nintendo, Microsoft, Nokia, and Sony among many others. If you own an iPad, iPhone, or iPod, it was at least partially manufactured at Foxconn.
The images in this gallery are presented to you with Joel's permission. Read his original article on Gizmodo for even more details.
This is an outside image of one of the Foxconn factories.
As reported in Is Apple’s suicide factory outsourcing to even cheaper Chinese peasants?, Foxconn and other Chinese manufacturers are putting up "suicide nets" to keep workers from jumping. Nice, huh?
