Samsung makes all of their top electronics, including the galaxy S line and their top end TV's IN HOUSE. They only go through foxconn to build that low end crap that most people in america dont buy anyways.
Also, you never hear of suicides at the samsung factory. This is again at the Apple factory, where they had 17 SUICIDES LAST YEAR. 17.. at 1 factory.
And that's not even adding in the dozens of people that died and were injured at the ipad factory last year that they build in 30 days.. then decided AGAINST installing ventilation in the building.. which resulted in an explosion because the air was so thick with aluminum particles and other junk. Try breathing in that for weeks.. before your blown up.
And yet.. again.. Foxconn themselves said that each factory is run differently according to the requests from the partner company and Apple has some of the worst conditions of all of their factories.
I wonder if its all just cosmic coincidence or if something different is happening there? HMMM??

Got to keep production levels up. Workers are a consumable resource - when one jumps, they get replaced with another one. Welcome to the new serfdom.

man, what the hell this world turned into?! povetry every fu*ken where! rich people (not all) latterly stepping on poor people for money!
people dying and being slaughtered every where and every day, yet the people fighting for animal rights and the global warming more than those fighting for human rights!
sometimes I wish i could travel far away to another planet and never come back again to this miserable world
screw the great powers in this world, they screwed humanity!

Not sure if this issue is created by Chinese culture...more specifically, the Chinese government, who wants foreign companies in their countries providing cheap jobs. I mean American companies have a choice to do business in China or not. The Chinese government could change and start allowing 40 hour work weeks only, but in China theyhave always worked long days and culturally, it is forbidden to complain or quit.

That third strike against me was definitely worth it. Guess i won't be posting on here for the next week. But the offer still stands Gallito.

Those employees at Foxconn better leave their jobs right now and find a new one before anything comes worse than the suicide incident. You are being treated like slaves there and apple gives you a low salary. I know it's not easy finding a job, but if you're being treated unfairly this way, just get out of that place because it's ruining your lives even more.
