On Contact: Dying for an iPhone
13 June 2021 (total run time: 28:51)
Interviewer: Chris Hedges
Interviewee: Dr Jeny Chan
On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to Professor Jenny Chan about the people in China who make iPhones, iPads and Kindles, driving the huge profits of two of the world’s most powerful companies – Foxconn, the world’s largest provider of electronics manufacturing services, and Apple with its $2 trillion market value.
Jenny Chan, along with Mark Selden and Pun Ngai, did extensive field research for almost a decade to produce their book, Dying for an iPhone: Apple, Foxconn, and The Lives of China’s Workers.
