After reading a New York Times article, I feel grateful I have the freedom to choose my internship because Chinese students do not have that privilege. In Zhengzhou, China, university students are forced to intern at FoxConn, the maker of the iPhone for Apple as a requirement for graduation. According to Li Quang, the founder of Chinese Labor Watch, “it is a very busy time with the new iPhone coming” Students work overtime, and schools close because they need to meet the requirements of mandatory internship. FoxConn has officially denied this. Work is a good thing, but there needs to be a balance. Working over forty hours a week is inefficient: people are more prone to accidents, and there is little or no time to study. I feel grateful to live in a country that allows my the freedom to choose my where I work and where I study. Although workers gain technical experience, many who are not technical students are forced to work in an irrelevant career.
