Marketplace correspondent Rob Schmitz, who gained attention for challenging Mike Daisey's accounts of working conditions in China, has been granted exclusive access by Apple and Foxconn to record the companies' iPad production line. The video (below) is a follow-up to last week's report of life inside Foxconn's Longhua facility in Shenzhen, which while critical of the company, is far less damning than Daisey's fictional account.

The video captures a first look at nearly-completed iPads undergoing screen and gyroscope testing, alongside the familiar images of hundreds of applicants waiting in line for a shot at working inside the factory. Schmitz ends the piece noting that Foxconn is locating its newest factories — like its new facility in Zhengzhou — in China's interior in order to access a greater part of China's vast labor supply.
