Description: The Nokia Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of mobile phones. Based in Finland, it employs approximately 50,000 people in more than 50 countries throughout the world. But is Nokia worried about the working conditions of thousands of young Chinese women employed by their suppliers to manufacture all those little bitty parts that go into your cell phone? Or is Nokia more concerned that you might hold them to account if you knew that their workers earn less than the Chinese minimum wage? This investigation explores the cultural divide (Chinese workers, British managers, Finnish executives) and the even more dramatic gender divide (women workers and investigators, male managers and executives) that go a long way toward explaining why the investigators' recommendation that opens buckets of toxic chemicals not be stored where the workers take their tea is met with this response: Ok, take them into the kitchen!
