The human cost of Apple products for workers in China

From — Protesters visited a half-dozen Apple stores around the world to deliver petitions calling for reforms in the working conditions at factories run by Apple's suppliers in China. The protests come on the heels of recent revelations of harsh conditions and onerous work environments at Apple's controversial Chinese supplier Foxconn, where more than a dozen employees have committed suicide. We're joined by New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg, who helped break the story about the human costs of Apple products for workers in China. We're also joined by Mike Daisey, whose acclaimed one-man show, "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs," is based partly on his visits to Apple's Chinese factories and his interviews with the workers there. "I want Apple to take real responsibility," Daisey says. "They have the resources to change this overnight."
