The main feature of April 2011 issue of New Internationalist concerns the condition of the Chinese workers who make an ever-increasing proportion of the world's manufactured goods. Jenny Chan is an advisor at Hong Kong-based Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior, and was part of an investigation of working conditions at Foxconn - the enormous corporation that manufactures products for Nokia, Dell and others - after a rash of suicides by workers in response to abysmal working conditions. She contributed an article on the subject, iSlave, which you can read as part of the selection of articles we publish online each issue.
Here, she discusses her article with Nyan Storey, our podcast editor.
