“The Shanghai Evening Post” has published an insider report of what it’s like to work at Foxconn’s Tai Yuan factory assembling the iPhone 5.

The story is told by a “Post” reporter who went undercover, got a job at the plant, and then kept a diary of his life while working there for 10 days. His article has been translated and summarized in English by “MIC Gadget.” You can find it at http://macte.ch/a7ZqZ .
