Chinese Prisoners Forced To Farm Warcraft GoldMay 27, 2011
According to a new report by the Guardian, Chinese prison camps have been forcing Chinese prisoners to farm gold for popular MMOs such as World Of Warcraft every day, after forcing them through hard labor all day.
The guards would then pocket all the money earned for themselves. If prisoners fell behind on the gold quota, they were physically beaten with plastic pipes and more.
The gold farming industry is an $80 billion industry, and this is not the first time it has been linked to slave labor.
