Maybe if it was Northumberland cricket players jumping in front of lorries it'd make you more concerned.

Ya I don't see this as really being much of an improvement over the previous situation...

If they get moved into America I'm fine with it. We need something to boost our economy.

Well. Taiwan news reports that Hong Hi has quadrupled the base pay and taken away the red envelope for if you die while at the factory. You used to get from 1/2 million to 1 million NT$ given to your family if you died, even for the suicides.

This company already was one of the best to work for in China, now the other companies are very worried that no one will work for them.

What have I learned from all of this:
Wester media does not give enough detail for outsiders to understand.
Buy your computer parts now, prices are going up. You thought the 4G Iphone was expensive before!

I wouldn't believe in this double sourced news, a million workers is not something you can replace overnight, the cost of moving factories, hiring new workers, not to mention the higher cost of new workers, make the wage increase look like pocket change. Foxconn's clients isn't going to like not getting their orders either so add loss of client trust to that list. Lastly, Chinese government isn't going to just sit there and let a million workers walk, you'd bet if Foxconn actually pulled this at least a few executives will get jail time, and Foxconn can forget doing any business in mainland China for at least 5 years.

Whatever their workers might feel, I doubt Foxconn executives is feeling suicidal right now

This is bigger than you guys think. If they shut down China factories, they don't just lose their Foxconn motherboards, etc. Who makes iPods and iPhones? If there's a shortage of them, that hurts crap even more, because 90% of the public walks into an AT&T store, asks for an iPhone. If the rep tells them they're on backorder, i have a feeling they're gonna walk down the road to the Verizon store, ask them for an iPhone. And that rep is going to talk them into getting a Droid. So anyone related to Foxconn, or Apple, could get screwed by this.
