FoxConn Faces Mass Suicide Prrotest

judgecorp writes "Last week, workers at Taiwanese equipment maker FoxConn took to the roof and threatened to jump off during negotiations over pay and conditions at a factory making xbox 360s, at Foxconn Technology Park in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, China. The dispute apparently started when workers asked for a pay rise, and ended when the Wuhan mayor talked them down from the roof. Suicides at Foxconn were in the news in 2010, and last year, an explosion in a factory making iPads killed three workers."
