I almost thought it's because of Apple. LOL

Well, the plant is supposed to make the case for the iP5, so Apple is an accessory of sorts (morally as opposed to legally).

I may be dating myself a bit here but the first thing that came to my mind was "Less filling/ Taste great".

(That was from the Miller Lite ads from the 80s- early 90s.)

I guess the could've had the Bugs Bunny/ Daffy Duck argument, Duck season/ Rabbit season.

Ummm. Because they want to add to their pile of cash (so executives like Jonie Ivie can cash in fewer options to fund the purchase of $17 million houses)?

Now, now, Ives already said Apple wasn't about money. I forget, was that before or after he purchased the $17 million house?

Its extremely sad when you look at these numbers. Assuming that Jonie Ivie already had a house and tons of money, he alone could have given every single foxconn worker $200 each with the money he used to buy that house which would make a major difference in their lives. Not that i'd expect him to but damn, this is a crazy world we live in.

expect this to happen at more foxconn factories if they find out about it.

"hey look, they got a vacation day!! fight everyone fight!!"

When I read it it sounded like the Chinese version of West Side Story. Rival factions dance fighting across the halls.

The low wages finally got to them. Instead of hurting themselves, they hurt each other.

Nintendo worker - Hey, my GSIII is better than the elongated remote control you're making!
Apple worker - Say what? Want a PS3?
