WalMart in China

Walmart created a groundbreaking sustainability initiative a few years ago, pledging to work with vendors in China to create more sustainable manufacturing practices worldwide. This article from Mother Jones follows one reporter who went to check in on this program at the actual Chinese factories, and what he found wasn't good, in fact, it was terrible.

The drawing runs across the fold of the opening spread, plus an additional spot on the interior of the article.

Both of my initial ideas were simliar, but portrayed slightly differently. In this case I agreed with the art directors choice for the fuller treatment, reaching across the gutter into the headline. A detail below.

Have you heard the recent this American life on apple and Chinese manufacturing? It's one of the nest I've heard in awhile.
