Ok so, in SHENZHEN, China - Apple manufacturer Foxconn, (seriously) yesterday - Wednesday urged workers to sign contracts promising not to kill themselves to stem a spate of suicides — hours before the 11th worker this year fell to his death.(thats 11 people in 5 months)
Foxconn Technology Group is a Taiwanese multinational company that is hands down the largest manufacturer of electronics, computers and computer components in the world.
They are the main producers of  items such as the Mac mini, iPod, iPad, iPhone, Dell Computers, HP motherboards, Wii, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 just to name a few.
Just so we in our cuntish 1st world bliss can be like oh my god have you checked out hipstamatic or Kekkaishi?The apparent suicides have raised questions about the conditions for millions of factory workers in China, especially at Foxconn's southern Chinese plant, where activists say long hours, low pay and high pressure are the norm.
On a more serious note, their name is FOXCONN!!!!! (seriously)
So what do you do... er we fox, er i mean con, er i mean electronics?
