Inside Foxconn's iPod factories

Updated with images - A report called 'iPod City' that was published in the British news paper Mail on Sunday, has revealed the inside of Foxconn's Longhua plant in China that make Apple's iPod. The plant houses 200,000 workers. The iPods are made by workers who earn approximately £27 per month.

According to the report the workers at the Longhua plant live in dormitories that house 100 people. Visitors are not permitted. Working hours are 15-hours a day. The report also claims that the new iPod nano is made in a five-storey factory secured by police officers. A spokes person told the news paper that female workers are more honest than male workers, therefore most of the workers who makes the iPod in these factories are female. The workers at the Suzhou plant in Shanghai who make the iPod shuffle model are housed outside the plant. They earn twice as much as the workers at the Longhua plant, however they must pay for their accommodation and food which takes up half their salaries, according to the report.
