really? why haven't heard any such things from asus, gigabytes, or whatever company you name it. after all, almost all the components are made in china. but only foxconn seems to have their workers flying off the roofs that often.

China isn't a communist country. It's an authoritarian system that just happens to be run by a party named the communist party.

"Sir, we think Chin-Lee may not be performing up to standards."

"Well then, I wouldn't be surprised if he committed suicide within the next couple of hours."

The amount of hours these people put in for their (roughly) $130 a month is so great that workers spend their breaks sleeping and barely eating. Just to make enough money to live they need to work enough to not have a life, the only way out is either suicide or starve to death for a lot of them. A shame some people can take something as sad and serious as suicide and make fun of it, this was about a human being after all.

So you're saying you don't stab yourself and set down the knife before committing suicide by jumping out of a window?

Have you ever tried simply turning off the TV, sitting down with your children, and hitting them?
