On the one hand, turning old dumpsters into employee housing is clever recycling. Which is good! On the other hand, you're living in an old dumpster& - which the Chengmai factory in China has cleverly spruced the place up.
From the photos, the dumpster digs don't seem too bad - a cheery façade, a small gym, and hey! Internet access! The entire structure consists of only 10 containers, which now house 40 labourers - so we can assume quarters are pretty tight.
And whether the facelift is more a cosmetic attempt to mask the fact that these guys are living inside of small shipping crates, or a genuine effort to make their lives easier, is another question entirely. [cinaoggi]
