Foxconn Suicides

Foxconn Suicides

Dark days for maker of electronic devices as Foxconn comes to terms with its high suicide rate.

Suicide is no laughing matter and when a large corporation is involved with multiple deaths questions get asked.

Foxconn make many devices and is one of the largest companies in its market – their products range from motherboards, to iPhones and a plethora o other electronic devices for large companies such as Dell and Apple.

There are reports that Foxconn has questionnably ethical practices when it comes to the welfare of its employees including 80 hours overtime on regular basis and strict working conditions. Information is limited as Foxconn rely on Western companies for business and cannot afford bad press.

However with in the light of multiple suicides including two today questions by those that use Foxconn’s services need to be asked. Foxconn has its own team of counsellors and volunteers that help employees that request it but it may be a case of too little too late. It certainly is for the families of those that have tragically ended their lives working at Foxconn.

Foxconn’s website was also hacked, more information at Shanghaiist.

Are consumers also to blame and is the price of our luxuries too high?
