Wolf heightened the dissonance with an exhibit in California that framed the worker's faces within a mosaic of colorful toys. In his online gallery, Wolf dropped some troubling stats about Chinese factory workers. For instance, their average monthly salary in 2010 was $240, which was "insufficient to cover basic needs for workers and their families."
