Outrage! Foxconn Chairman: Suicides Statistically Insignificant!

Drawing: bmezine.com

The putative chairman of Foxconn, the Taiwanese subcontractor for such large brands as Dell, HP, Nokia and Apple, told reporters that the 13 suicide attempts at his company's facilities on mainland China are insignificant. Ping-pong Guo, also known as "Terry," made the outrageous remark a few days ago. What a capitalist pig!

Experts blame poor working conditions, including twelve-hour shifts and social isolation, for the rash of suicides and suicide attempts among Foxconn's young employees.
