The Real Price of Technology

Americans tend to take things for granted, especially technology.  We go about our daily lives, never thinking about the person who made the cell phones, iPods, or laptops that we use.  Well, now’s the time to think about it.

In his article, “Where The Workers Who Made Your iPhone Sleep At Night,” Joel Johnson provides us with an inside look at how Chinese laborers are forced to live.  Now compare those photos to Steve Jobs’s house.   


It’s clear that tech companies are making a fortune selling us their latest gadgets, so how is it that these workers are forced to live in these kind of conditions?  Where’s the humanity?  It’s really heartwrenching.
