Who Pays The Price? The Human Cost of Electronics

This short documentary reveals the hazards of the electronics industry in China profiling workers poisoned by chemicals and their struggle for compensation.

In China, over 200 million people are working in hazardous environments. According to Chinese government statistics, one person will get poisoned by toxic chemicals every 55 hours; the majority from benzene. Experts assert this number is much higher. A benzene free electronic device would cost consumers less than $1 USD more.
