I like how they are pretty much saying it's Apple's fault, yet they didn't disclose what caused the explosion.

They'll play the PR game like with the suicides and the higher wages but they cut housing and food allowances to keep the same expenses.

But you do realize that hundred and thousands of people flock from rural areas to get these jobs right? Because getting a job at Foxconn is way better then roughing it out in a field doing manual labor...

They probably make more money at Foxconn then they do in the field doing farm work.
