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.
