Employees and Employers
By 2008, The Toshiba factory in China had at least 5,000 people! Also in 2008, there was a massive fire at the production factory in Dogguan, China due to all the chemicals although payment has gone up since then, conditions are even worse.
Wow! Imagine you had to make something as cool as this as a slave! Not that fun!
I don't know about you but when I see this I think "Touchscreen" can you imagine how hard it must be to make one
