Foxconn said that it offered transfers to some workers at current pay, without elaborating on what others were offered. It said that 150 demanded severance and not all of them participated in the rooftop protest. "It is our understanding that certain individuals threatened to jump from the building if their demands were not met," the statement said.
These suicides keep on happening and the same thing is said everytime; Foxconn needs to get their act together. Glad to see a group of people standing against this BS.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
You know, the news *today* (12 Jan 2012) is that the issue was settled. Ergo, your headline is intended to grab pageclicks by stirring up emotion.
The article is factual enough, but the headline is pure yellow journalism.
Well the headline says threaten, not that they actually jumped. But like taylor said, they really need to get their acts together. U can't say one thing to the public and do the other on the inside.
Have you read Microsoft's response? Basically they wanted better conditions and raises, but MS's "thorough" investigation decided that they were just confused about their option to "take it or leave it". Some got transferred, and some were given the privilege of leaving. So, yeah the headline misses the mark but I think the situation is probably still tense over there.
FoxConn = fail. Hopefully Apple follows suit if enough of these companies gang up the working conditions will improve. Of course that will bring increased costs to consumers who will just need to suck it up and deal. People are more important than money.
