素材段落 The New York Times is an American daily newspaper that boasts the largest circulation of any metropolitan newspaper in the United States. Reporters and editors of The New York Times have undertaken a large-scale effort to bring readers a variety of high-quality news reports, articles and analyses on issues within America and throughout the world. In 2007, they issued a special series of reports on industrial workers at Foxconn, a manufacturing Titan based in China. Readers were exposed to a detailed analysis of the problems facing those workers, which included a rise in contingent employment, a decline of social welfare benefits and deteriorating working conditions. All of these problems had resulted in a dramatic suicide rate increase at Foxconn. More importantly, the report raised general concerns among American and Chinese politicians and economists of the challenges confronting workers globally and of the possible creation of a universal coalition of workers.
