Images of life inside the iPhone factory

iphone factory

Gizmodo posted shots of dorm blocks, in which Foxconn’s factory workers spend their off-duty lives. Men and women have separate facilities. Eight workers sleep in four bunk beds in a room about the size of a two-car garage. Long shifts, under-exploited exercise equipment, sinks on the balconies, where workers have to wash their clothing and themselves, and tiny televisions (one per a floor) in depersonalized common rooms, this is life at Foxconn’s iPhone factories. Since a spate of eleven suicides earlier this year, every building on the Foxconn campus is draped in netting. It is morbid but seemingly effective; there have been no suicides since the nets were installed in May.

  1. It's very sad & pathetic that a company's who's employees are so mistreated, that suicide is the only way out for them, shame on them! When you have to seal windows, or place netting to keep employee's from jumping to their deaths, this should be an eye opener to all parties involved!
