Inside a Foxconn factory

Given the controversy swirling around working conditions at Foxconn, you almost expect a glimpse inside the factory to reveal so many safety violations that it'd resemble a real-life version of The Simpsons' Nuclear Power Plant.

Instead you see a clean, organised, safe-looking workplace; arguably one of the better examples of a factory in China. But still one where an independent audit has found that many labor rights abuses do occur, from excessive working hours to safety violations.

It's rare for reporters to get inside the gates of the Foxconn complex, but Marketplace's Rob Schmitz was invited to take a look inside and shared his reports with us.
