Factory Tour of the Day: Marketplace‘s Shanghai Bureau Chief Rob Schmitz has gone where only one other reporter has gone before: the factory floor of FoxconnApple‘s Chinese producer, where a rash of suicides and reputed poor working conditions have prompted a“Foxconn suicides” Wikipedia page.

Schmitz’s insights, via video and his Reporter’s Notebook, reveal an evolving concept of the assembly line, and a 200,000-strong community where, to no one’s surprise, “nobody is a fan of the work.”
