Foxconn worker dormitories

The largest supplier of such firms as Apple, Dell and HP, Foxconn Technology employees more than 400,000 factory workers. The majority of the workers come from China’s remoter provinces and, as is standard practice locally, they live in onsite accommodation, similar to housing estates or a university campus. Men and women live in separate buildings, sleeping in rooms full of bunk beds with one communal TV room on each storey. In some of the buildings the sanitary and washing facilities consist of bathrooms outside on balconies.

Apart from the accommodation buildings on the 2.1 km² premises there are shops, restaurants, sports fields and a swimming pool, cinema, internet café, hospital and education centre.
