I hate to say it, but where is the news here? This is commonplace throughout tech factories in China. There are labor laws in China against such treatment, but these laws are not enforced with any regularity. Often for the workers this is actually an improvement in lifestyle for them. For the most part they are glad to be working. Not that they like the conditions, because they don't - forced overtime (often unpaid), low wages, cramped living quarters (that they often get charged unfair amounts of money for), poor food, dangerous or hazardous working conditions. Kind of looks like the USA 100 years ago!
