Submission How your keyboard was made

kpw writes: The National Labor Committee's recently released report on working conditions in the Meitai keyboard factory in China carefully details the illegal and inhumane working conditions that go into making products for companies like Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Lenovo, Microsoft and IBM. The products that Meitai builds include the very keyboard used to write this post. Take a moment to look through the photographs made over the last several months by the undercover investigators and see if you can spot your own keyboard on the assembly line. Then read through some of the statements from factory workers and, on their behalf, consider contacting the companies responsible for this travesty (contact information is provided at the bottom of the report).
