Foxconn Employees Threaten Mass Suicide @ Xbox 360 Plant - PCSTATS.com Foxconn Employees Threaten Mass Suicide @ Xbox 360 Plant
Mon, Jan 16 2012 | 10:05PM | Filed under: Business / Industry| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

300 employees go to tallest tower in the Foxconn plant which makes Xbox 360's and threaten to commit suicide because company won't give a raise + tricks employees out of job... according to PCMag.com

"The mass suicide threat stemmed from an incident on Jan. 2, in which the workers asked for a raise and were told to either quit with compensation or keep their jobs and receive no pay increase, according to a report from WantChinaTines.com In response, the employees went to the top of a building at a Foxconn Technology Park and threatened to jump, according to the report. The mayor of the town eventually came and talked them out of it.

Suicide at Foxconn has been a serious problem in the past. At least 14 Foxconn workers in plants in the Chinese cities of Shenzen and Chengdu have taken their own lives since a string of worker suicides began in early 2010."
