If Foxconn's not bad I'd hate to hear about the really bad ones. The "workers" only recently got a bump in pay after their recent group of suicides. At that time factory workers of other companies were walking out or protesting their low pay. NY Times:"The Honda strike, which lasted more than two weeks, was a rare show of power by Chinese workers, who are not commonly allowed by the government to publicly strike and walk off the job for higher wages." What would have happened to them if the Chinese government enforced the part where "they are not allowed"?
Article in the URL is dated June 2, 2010 and there were already 10 suicides by then. Stats on Wikipedia (grain of salt) stated that there were 18 attemps and 14 deaths. In 2011 there were three attempts with two confirmed deaths.NY Times on the Foxconn issue
"An 83 page report detailing the Foxconn suicides and labor conditions was produced by 20 universities in Hong Kong, Taiwan and mainland China. Interviews of 1,800 Foxconn workers at 12 factories found evidence of illegal overtime and failure to report accidents. The report also criticized Foxconn's management style, which it called inhumane and abusive.
A Hong Kong-based non-profit organization, Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour, also produced a report on Foxconn employee mistreatment."
And despite all of this Apple still makes their product from this plant as if it doesn't happen at all. There is no oversight in these places, little gets reported and if given the chance they'd to that to US employees too if there weren't so many regulations, but there is definitely a case for too many regulations that makes companies jump the pond to save money.
