520    Suicides, excessive overtime, and hostility and violence 
       on the factory floor in China. Drawing on vivid 
       testimonies from rural migrant workers, student interns, 
       managers and trade union staff, Dying for an iPhoneis a 
       devastating expose of two of the world's most powerful 
       companies: Foxconn and Apple. As the leading manufacturer 
       of iPhones, iPads, and Kindles, and employing one million 
       workers in China alone, Taiwanese-invested Foxconn's drive
       to dominate global electronics manufacturing has aligned 
       perfectly with China's goal of becoming the world leader 
       in technology. This book reveals the human cost of that 
       ambition and what our demands for the newest and best 
       technology means for workers. Foxconn workers have 
       repeatedly demonstrated their power to strike at key nodes
       of transnational production, challenge management and the 
       Chinese state, and confront global tech behemoths. Dying 
       for an iPhone allows us to assess the impact of global 
       capitalism's deepening crisis on workers.
