According to a recent report from China Youth Daily, contract manufacturer Foxconn, whose reputation in China has suffered this year following a string of worker suicides calling its working conditions into question, struck a deal recently with education authorities in Henan province to organize Foxconn internships in Shenzhen for 25,000 Henan university students. Students told the newspaper that the internships were forced upon them, and they were told they would not be awarded degrees if they did not participate.In this cartoon, posted by the Kunming-based studio Yuan Jiao Man’s Space (圆觉漫时空) to, a slimy Foxconn boss thinking only of the fat bag of profits behind his desk introduces an audience of very worried college students to the virtues of the company.
