If they quit, they don't have any income at all. Try living on no money at all and see how far you get. Its not like they can just go and find another job, China doesn't work like that - way more workers than jobs.

Not to sure where you got that information from.

Anyways I can guarantee you this "price" increase will yield more profits even after cutting the extra costs of the labor wage increases.

This is capitalism at it's finest and a really good strategy to maintain 100% profit. They'll be getting a monthly salary of $195 a month which is still equivalent of one Foxconn motherboard or combine 2 worker's monthly salaries and that's the equivalent of an iPad. By increasing prices on their products, they won't be losing any money by slightly increasing wages. The 12 hour a day, 6 days a week, working days will continue. This is absolutely brilliant.

The company's working conditions probably does suck and the way they treat there employees.
My life is worth too much to give it up for any problem. No problem can be that bad to end your life. Anyone that is willing to kill himself is simply a moron.

There is no excuse for it. Like I said find another job, move somewhere else. Find another solution but suicide is never a solution and there is no one to blame but yourself for even thinking something like that.

Now if these people were actually being held hostage and being forced to work against their will then that would be a different story and they may have a point in trying to blame Foxconn.

Not brilliant, but smart whenever you don't want to loose a penny.
What is brilliant, is the way American's are raised. If there's a problem throw money at it until it goes away, even if money was not the problem in the first place..

On other news, Foxconn will no longer pay condolences payments to families of suicidee's. As I mentioned before it was very possible Foxconn was paying them if they died while at work (thus people committed suicide to get $$ for their families), and this confirms it.

Previously most of the victims' families had received payments of more than $14,000 (£9,700) each.
Suicides are going bye bye.

i got that information when I attended elementary school and high school.

and for ur reference, from Element to university, every term we have a required course called mentality education, this course is telling students how good Chinese government/party is and how evil the rest of countries in the world are, too bad, u have to pass this course so that they would not kick ur ass out of school.
