An 18 year old, who wishes to remain nameless, former Smart Union employee in her apartment near the Smart Union factory in Dongguan, China. She had only worked for the factory for three months before it went bankrupt, she is returning home to Hubei province tomorrow. Dongguan has been hard hit the last few months as the economies of rich countries falter. Export demand has been reduced and companies that were operating on the margins have folded leaving thousands of migrant workers with tough choices.
