    Funny to see Jon Stewart make fun of this.  But in reality, these are the jobs that some Chinese view as preferable to what they were doing before, which in most cases was probably agrarian. 

    Though Jon failed to mention it, employees of Foxconn can quit at any time.  But they usually don’t, because, (a) this is the best job that they can get and (b) there is another Chinaman who would gladly take their place. 

    It sucks to be unskilled in a world where globalization has increased the ranks of the “accessible” unskilled by a few billion in the past few decades.  But it’s just the way it is.  That goes for unskilled westerners too–the ones who are commonly currently in the ranks of the unemployed.
