Editor's note: The contents of this article can no longer be presented as though they are factually correct. On March 16, an investigation by Marketplace and This American Life revealed that a number of Mike Daisey's allegations against Foxconn in China are not correct. This American Life retracted its episode that was centered on Daisey's monologue, though Daisey insists he stands by his theatre. He admits, however, that parts of his monologue are made up.
