In the ongoing debate about globalization, what's been missing is the voices of workers -- the millions of people who migrate to factories in China and other emerging countries to make goods sold all over the world. Reporter Leslie T. Chang sought out women who work in one of China's booming megacities, and tells their stories.

Wow, I think after 7 years. Things have been changed a lot.

I lost her a minute in when she said “What’s wrong with a world where a worker on an iPhone assembly line cant even afford to buy one”. Worst example I’ve ever heard. Just because someone works on something doesn’t give him the right to afford it. So if I work at a a Ferrari factory i should be able to afford one? If I work on a mansion in Beverly Hills i should afford one?

Good speech. Well researched. Balanced point of views.

This talk could have been executed a lot better... Just because these 'females' have ambition and do not place much value in high end brands or goods does not mean their quality of life is even close to acceptable. The living conditions she described, being forced to leave your children in the village for months or even years to afford basic needs is messed up. And the reason they don't know any better is due to the oppressive Chinese government who censor out the rest of the world. The entire globe relying on China and their cheap goods produced from exploiting these poor workers is not only a sad and urgent issue within China but makes us incredibly dependent on China and at their very mercy. China is the pinnacle of Asian history and culture YET beautiful historical sites and cultural traditions have slowly been destroyed by Western influence, the industrial revolution and poverty which drives people to only be able to worry about getting through the day. Not sure how I feel about no more self sufficiency in the western world, soon enough China will economically take over the world whilst we sit and watch continuing to buy Made In China goods.

Who is paying her? #YellowVests #giletsjeunes OF COURSE THEY WILL LIE??? They are depressed and suicidal!
Paula Ann Stewart 28.05.2019 03:54
This is the single most ridiculous TedTalk I habe ever heard:o...#YellowVests #OccupyWallStreet #OccupyNYC...so Chinese factory workers are just poor fashionistas. With poor financial literacy skills. DISGUSTING! Anything to assuage your Guilty feelings about how America exploits and destroys Chinese youth.

I'm so glad I can finally hear from the daughter of a family that can afford 3 generations of tuition at Harvard talk about class and social mobility. Also love the cutting edge commentary on Marx done by someone who clearly hasn't even thumbed through the 80 pages of the Manifesto. This talk is garbage and her book is garbage apologia to make urban bourgeoisie in America get warm fuzzies about the fact that there are suicide nets at the factories where their consumer goods are made. That's like slapping someone in the face and telling them "It's great actually, because it could be worse, I could slap you twice".

boot licker.

The only reason communism 'works' is because it perpetually lives off of what it steals from capitalism. If capitalism didn't exist, communism would starve to death.

"Our desire for cheap goods..." It's not the consumers fault its the greedy oligarchs that control Apple that are the beneficiaries of these lower wages and higher prices. The workers get screwed over with very low wages and we the consumer get screwed over because many of these products are over priced. Iphones are not worth $1500 USD. We also lose jobs to these workers which means we can't get better wages because these jobs are offshored to people forced to work for less money. These fkn oligarchs are either paying no tax or almost nothing in taxes. Apple the most valuable company is worth a trillion dollars. That's not in my bank account nor do they pay a fair amount of tax. They stuff all the money in some off shore account which pays no tax. This whole system was built for oligarchs to exploit people. Social engineering on a global scale. Ever wonder what USA is doing? It's a grand plan to take over countries and exploit their people and their resources. Globalisation and offshoring is another name for slavery and exploiting the poor. It's also about taking over a country and its people. What did we fight for in wars? Again its always about oligarchs getting wealthy using social engineering. Find some cheap land build businesses then build high density housing around them. It's the greatest ripoff of the poor I've ever witnessed. Stop consuming thats the solution. Stop buying crap.
