"Daddy? Where do iPods come from?" This important question was answered recently by Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper. They come from China, specifically, massive factories full of mainly women who toil for over 15 hours a day in armed encampments for about $50 a month. Sweatshops? Think different!
So next time you slip on your earbuds, remember: You only think you're listening to Gnarls Barkley; really you're really listening to human despair.
Have a good day!
