What are electronic sweatshops

If your a nerd like me you most likely use a lot of tech. One of your primary sources of tech is probably DELL. As I did my on Dell research I found that Dell uses things called electronic sweatshops. Electronic sweatshops are found in major Chinese cities in China such as Beijing or Hong Kong. Electronic sweatshops are a place where underaged workers are assembling large amounts of iPhones, iPods, laptops, PCs, monitors, etc. . They are underpaid and forced to work over time. Others Signed into contacts they don't understand. Some forced to be welding wires to mother boards and phone chips. If you've ever been to China you'll probably say that you've never seen such factories. That is because the government wants you and everyone from the outside world to see the best of China (Even in my video below I was not able to get a video that shows complete picture). These electronic sweatshops cut corners to insure the cheapest sells to their companies. Many of these electronic sweatshops don't have proper ventilation, open exits, and safe equipment. This makes it hot and dangerous to work in these factories. Many of the factory workers, however, don't have a choice with so many Chinese citizen there's no better jobs that they could do with their poor education.
