So I was reading an article on the NYT about how horrible it is that the new iPhone 5 used forced student labor: http://nyti.ms/SyUJP4[^]

Apparently around 32,000 students from vocational schools were told they had to work at Foxconn or they wouldn't graduate. I'm sorry, but how is that different from the current 'Intern' culture in the US and elsewhere? I know that in the US, supposedly, unpaid internships should benefit the student and they are not allowed to work in a capacity that a paid employee would, but we know that doesn't happen. Also, I know many programs have an internship as a requirement to graduation. How is it that we can look at China and say 'forced labor', but when we look at ourselves it's 'valuable education'...

... I call MacGuffin[^]
