I am really getting tired of Modmyi not checking for typos and grammar mistakes!! It's "Foxconn" not "Foxcon". I know it is a minor mistake, but just check your writing next time. There was an article a few days ago that was hindered by incorrect grammar and such.

I have no love for China, I came from Taiwan which is being oppressed by China from joining international community. Hell China got Taiwan kicked out of UN.
What I read from your post is everyone should be like us.
China has slowly opened up China since the 80's, feels very free when I went there in 2006. Do not feel any oppression like you are imagining, and yes I've visit the countryside of China and they feel the same.
Now how is U.S.? Big brother watching all the time. Government taking more and more of your money, tells you what you have to spend on losing freedom every day.
BTW U.S. have absolutely have no right to talk. Who is in Afghanistan? Pakistan? Iraq? You really think we are fighting for their people's freedom? Paying billions to the corrupt government of each and every mentioned countries. Hell one even had U.S. #1 wanted man for years most likely getting paid off by him, and still had no problem taking billions a year from U.S. That is the government U.S. supports just to get a bit more oil.

The whole article is bad since it relies on this false premise "... an inordinate amount of suicides occuring amongst Foxconn employees..."
There wasn't an inordinate amount of suicides. The rate falls well within the regular suicide rate. All this article does is stir up emotions where it's absolutely not needed nor warranted.We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

If they were busy working, then they wouldn't have had enough time to kill themselves. I DON'T THINK THEY'RE WORKING HARD ENOUGH!!! (just kidding)
Seriously though, I could care less what the statistics and the averages are. If ONE person commits suicide, then they need to stop and examine how they conduct business. If a worker is happy, he/she will feel obligated to work 1,000x harder. Slave Labor equals quick crappy work, instead of prideful quality work. I'm not saying to build them a Rec. Center, but these are, nonetheless..... PEOPLE. Have a damn pizza party or something; COME ON!
Bet if a sloppy fat miserable bastard of a co-worker tossed himself off a building because of poor work conditions, your job would have a moment of silence and you'd stand around the cooler all day talking about how it could have been prevented. Americans have a arrogant "oh well, it's not my problem" attitude; it's called karma, prepare for it.

Don't like it, don't work there? Are you serious? These people have families and the corporations are exposing them for their need to provide. How would you like it if every occupation you are capable to work in suddenly decided to pay you 3 dollars an hour? Who would you complain to? The government? How would you like it if they said, "Well if you don't like it, don't work there."
Seriously people on this forum will go teeth and nail to defend Apple like they're capable of no flaws. It's sick and disgusting.
