"We wake up before the roosters, go to sleep after the dogs, eat worse than the pigs." Because of the high demand for Apple products, workers at the Foxconn factory are forced to work like machines and treated worse than farm animals. This is the truth that the media try to cover up. Your iPhones and iPads do not grow on trees ... they're made by slaves. Is this to become a model for the new world order for humans everywhere?

For somebody without the resources to do either? I don't think there's much of a difference.

A large disparity in wealth still exists in Hong Kong. Fleeing to a slightly more politically-liberal climate doesn't mean much as far as working conditions and quality of life are concerned. Your "if you don't like it, then get out" logic is moronic in any case.

Well of course. I think it's fair to say, however, that the conditions at Foxconn are a symptom of the international global profiteering effort that most of the world understands as "capitalism." We can go back and forth about whether or not these conditions would exist in a "genuine free market," but I don't think utopian visions are relevant to this discussion.
