Your Keyboard Is A Human Rights Violation

The keyboards you and I are using right now, even the very keyboard I used to type this, could have been made in a factory guilty of human rights violations. I guess now is a bad time to complain about the letter X on my keyboard sometimes sticking.

The workers are paid a base wage of 64 cents an hour, which does not even come close to meeting subsistence level needs. After deductions for primitive room and board, the workers' take-home wage drops to just 41 cents an hour. A worker toiling 75 hours a week will earn a take-home wage of $57.19, or 76 cents an hour including overtime and bonuses. The workers are routinely cheated of 14 to 19 percent of the wages legally due them.
