‘Now Can We Start Talking About the Real Foxconn?’

Tim Culpan:

The problem with Mike Daisey’s lies is that they’ve painted a picture of the Evil Empire, a place devoid of any happiness or humanity. A dark, Dickensian scene of horror and tears. They also make anyone who tries to tell a fuller, more balanced account look like an Apple or Foxconn apologist because your mind is already full of the “knowledge” of how bad it is there.

Culpan also talks about how workers want more hours, not less — a story that jives with a Reuters report.
