Foxconn (Apple Factory) & Suicides
Thanks everyone for chiming in on the last thread. I didn't have time to come back and comment myself. But it looks like almost everyone understood what was going on.
I read the Toronto Sun quite often and I remembered seeing articles about foxconn written in May.
Here's 2 articles that were written in May. It discusses the conditions the workers live in, why they can't leave, etc.
Here is an article written a week later about another suicide at the plant which makes wonderful apple products.
This is an article about an explosion that happened at Foxconn due to the lack of care for the employees a week after the last suicide.
I just wish I could find the article i read about the company erecting fences on the roof and barring all the windows making it look like a prison.... But I will keep searching for it

I think this board is appropriate. Could have been posted on a few other boards, but that doesn't mean it's not fitting here.
