The New York Times reports that Chinese students are being forced to work as “interns” on Foxconn assembly lines. Said one student:
“The university told us it’s a good way to experience corporate culture,” a 19-year-old student told China Daily newspaper. “Even though many of my classmates are reluctant to go to Foxconn, our teachers still asked us to work there starting in August.”
Ironically, what the kid said is all too true: it is indeed a good way to experience multinational culture.
What ever happened to the America that prided itself on abolishing slavery?
