Here’s a video by CNN that adds a personal story to the controversy on Apple and Foxconn. While a lot of the information is old, CNN makes the situation easier to identify with by interviewing a female Foxconn employee. The interview subject revealed that it’s forbidden for Foxconn employees to grant interviews; at best they’ll lose their job and at worst they’ll face criminal charges. The anonymous employee also says that Foxconn employees are treated like “animals”. Watch the entire video below.
