Chinese factory Foxconn is fighting back against its image as a sweatshop that drives its workers to suicide by installing nets to catch employees, should they try to jump to their deaths.

Check out the picture, f**king creepy:

Eh wtf? I was going to say what they should do instead of a net but I keep remembering that its cheaper. But seriously if someone wants to kill himself he wouldn't let a stupid net ruin his opportunity.

What I don't get is that the last suicide was a lady jumping from her apartment. So the Foxconn employess sleep at Foxconn? :~ Are they putting nets at foxconn or at the residents building?

Yeah the workers sleep there. Part of the factory is sectioned off into dorms for the employees (I think they have to pay to live there too). I think there are lots of other large factories like this in Asia, mainly because some/most of the employees come from rural parts, farther away from the city. I can't imagine what that would be like... living where you work. I don't blame them for jumping.

They do a good job though, Foxconn is a damn good company.
