Monologist Mike Daisey talks about the need to apply pressure on Apple to change outside the Grand Central Apple store. Daisey wrote the monologue, "The Agony and the Ecstacy of Steve Jobs" and often talks about his experiences in China.

Editor's note, March 19, 2012: "This American Life" announced late last week that it's retracting a story it did recently about working conditions at Foxconn that included an interview with Mike Daisey as well as an excerpt from his monologue "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs." It said it was doing so because of "numerous fabrications" it found. CNET's Josh Lowensohn has the details in this story. Daisey's own statement is on his Web site. A recent investigative report by The New York Times looked at working conditions in Apple's supply chain in China.

The event drew few activists--a little more than a dozen showed up to Grand Central. In fact, there were much more media at the store.
