Something has been amiss with employees at Foxconn. A number of workers at the factory have committed suicide in recent months. Yesterday the 11th Foxconn worker to jump from a factory building was reported.




The worker was a 19-year-old man and he became the ninth worker from the factory to die in a suicide attempt. The worker had only been at Foxconn for a month and a half.


Foxconn's CEO says that his factory is not a sweatshop and admitted it was hard to control 800,000 workers. There have been allegations that Foxconn guards beat workers and working conditions are harsh.
