Tenth Foxconn Worker Kills Himself

Foxconn "Suicide Cluster" Claims Another Victim - #9.

Undercover Report From Foxconn's Hell Factory

Yes, FoxConn, the libertarian idea of a workers paradise.

Do you really need that Chinese made gadget? How much blood and suffering has bought it?

You might want to make it clearer that the factory is in ROC (Taiwan), not PRC

No, Shenzen China is in PRC - mainland China. It is near Hong Kong. Google is your friend.

Also Hon Hai to Raise Wages by 30% - Hon Hai operates the FoxConn plant.

... regardless of the where, I am feeling better that I don't have most of the tech gadgets most've my chums have. No cell, no ipods or the like. Except for computers, I -really- try to buy locally made stuff.

It's actually very funny how much of my clothing are things I've bought at Cons from the person who sewed it. [OK, undies and bras are not counted in that - but Lane Bryant gets a lot of the spacific brands I like from England. ^_^]

And the last time I got shoes was almost 20 years ago now. 3 sets of 'running shoes' that are all still in wearable condition - all from an off-brand US company, right before they were bought out by Nike [and then eliminated ... maybe because they made shoes that -lasted-?]

But in general I -very- much agree - and just don't ever go to places like Walmart, even if they are cheaper.
