ABC’s Nightline Report on Apple/Foxconn Now Available For Online Viewing

Did you miss last night’s Nightline “iFactory: Inside Apple” report on working conditions inside Foxconn? Me too. Fortunately, ABC was kind enough to post the entire episode online for anyone who wants to view it. And I’d highly recommend it – some very interesting and eye-opening things in there.

The Verge has assembled some of the more interesting statistics from the report:

  • It takes 141 steps to make an iPhone, and the devices are essentially all handmade
  • It takes five days and 325 hands to make a single iPad
  • Foxconn workers pay for their own food — about $.70 per meal, and work 12 hour shifts
  • Workers who live in the dorms sleep six to eight a room, and pay $17.50 a month to do so
  • Workers make $1.78 an hour

In general, the report cast Apple in a fairly positive light, suggesting that the company is very aware of the conditions at Foxconn, and is being very responsive to the concerns people have on the matter.
