Since starting my MFA 6 months ago the days have turned into a blur of thinking and making. The reasons I chose to go back to academia have taken a slight backseat while I’ve focused my attention toward the opportunities SVA has been presenting.
A question that constantly comes up from friends…
Seriously, when you know how your polish 3D product come from, you may not that admire and fancy with that. I am one of the guys who feeling complex with apple product.
One the website, there are fruitful reports and command related the sweat factory, but sure, in Chinese. Here are some command I found is really unique and interesting, I am planning to translate them lately. But if you could read Chinese, you could go through it now.
About the latest New York Times report about the Petitions protest Apple working conditions in China, here is an interesting command,
“惊讶于美国人的“正义感”和海量召集的公众互动能力，官方氛围也很轻松。只是就现状而言， 美国人有点饱汉不知饿汉饥，不过是打了苹果及富士康的“出头鸟”。据相关资料，美国人圣诞节期间的绝大部分礼品和饰品，都来自中国，如水晶球、珠帘、玻璃 挂件、木制品、智力玩具、动漫产品等工艺品。其中有五六亿元采购自瑞安工艺品之乡林溪乡，许多农村厂的产品，工人老至85岁，小至5岁，每天工作 13-17个小时，没有任何社会福利，你们的圣诞节要食不甘味吗”
Basically ,what he said is “I disagreed with the petitions only point to the most famous company, like apple. There are millions of products, especially the Christmas decorative stuff in US are OEM at China, among which 5.6 billion are from a rural area, named Linxi where workers are from 5 years old to 85 years old, working 13-17 hours every day, no any social welfare. If you know this, how do you feeling about your Christmas? “
Here are another interesting report about why apple fans not that care about the sweat factory I am planning to translate it into English, too.
