Fry: "Is all of the work here done by children?"
Alien: "Not the whipping!"

hopefully the 1 million robots that will replace these people don't become self-aware and commit suicide as well.

Foxconn's workforce numbers over a million souls. That's about the population of an entire city. There are bound to be a few mentally unstable people in a workforce that large. But because its happening to a hugely successful Chinese company it gets a lot of attention in the western media.

In China, anything over 100 hours is considered overtime.

Vote Republican, so we can work like this, too.

China's ruled by commies.

The perfect fusion between communism and capitalism. It has the strong controls of communism paired with the exploitation of capitalism on steroids. Don't worry it will be here soon enough.

My Chinese government should terminate all Foxconn business in China.

Wow a job that is full of completely meaningless assembly work, the ultimate anti-stimulation, is leading people to suicide? They are feeling their lives are pointless and empty as they sit in their work site dormitories, what a shock!

 

It is barely an existence, I'm surprised there aren't MORE suicides.

Look at the woman, she looks like she hasn't sleep for weeks.  Apple is evil.

Pretty sure that's a droid, not a woman.

 

So this means that Apple is made by Google... PLOT TWIST!

Did he only work 2 hours of overtime or did they only pay him for 2 hours overtime?

Try this on for size, then..

"Look Daddy, every time someone buys an Apple product, a Foxconn worker dies."

I agree with you Lunchbox!

Wonder what type of idiotic posts will come after ours?

He could have just been a depressed dude and it had nothing to do with work but still looks bad for Foxconn.

The odds of that happening in an operation of their size is quite high.
