A 20-year-old Honda Lock female worker poses after an interview with Reuters in Zhongshan, southern Chinese province of Guangdong, June 11, 2010. China may be "the workshop of the world", but young rural migrant workers are less accepting than their parents were of life in the factories -- low pay, gruelling hours, and sometimes martial workplace rules. A spate of worker suicides at the tightly guarded factories that make gadgets for Apple and other electronics companies has also highlighted their plight, becoming a cause celebre for migrant workers who followed the stories online -- as well as an embarrassment to the foreign companies that depend on the plants.
