Foxconn: An Exclusive Inside Look

What is it like inside a factory that makes Apple iPads? Tonight, an ABC Nightline special called “iFactory” gave us the first peak at actual factory working conditions and the people living on the assembly line.

Bill Weir, a reporter for ABC, traveled to Foxconn, a Chinese manufacturing company, soon after the media began taking a closer look at Apple’s assembly line practices. He went along with the Fair Labor Association, which Apple recently invited to audit its facilities in an effort to improve its conditions, or perhaps combat criticism. It also offered to post the audits to its website to keep transparency. Weir notes that Apple paid both to get into the FLA, and also for the audits it will preform, though an FLA employee assures that any “white-washing” will be obvious in the audit report.
