Video: A (Definitely) Crazy (Allegedly) Chinese Press Operation


    I don't know the original source of this and I can't vouch for its authenticity, but I can only assume this is a real example of conditions in a real Chinese factory. I guess you not only have cheap labor rates, but a lack of respect for people and their safety? I hope something like this is an isolated case.

    1. One of our customers shared this with us and we have been spreading it for about a month. Reactions have ranged from disbelief to outrage, and rightly so.

    2. Do I know, for a fact, that it is from China? No, but every reference to the video on the internet says China, so that’s all I have to go on.

      Do you have information that it is not China? Tony, if you can, please email me at

    3. Even if this video isn’t from China (it ain’t from Mexico) this sort of thing IS happening in China. There is plenty of hard evidence on that, Tony.
