    Default Foxconn settles with workers who threatened mass suicide

    Ever want to know how we always get Foxconn products much cheaper then others?
    “Electronics manufacturer Foxconn said it has settled a pay dispute with workers at one of its China factories after the employees protested last week by threatening to commit suicide.”

    One individual who participated in the protest told The New York Times that the workers had been transferred from a Foxconn facility in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen to the factory in Wuhan. They were promised $450 a month in salary, plus overtime pay but when they got there, they were given about a third less than what was agreed upon and the conditions in Wuhan were much more difficult.

    The protest took place last week at a plant in Wuhan, China. The company said the protest involved about 150 of its 32,000 employees. Earlier reports, however, said 300 individuals were involved in a mass suicide threat.

    Foxconn, the largest contract electronics manufacturer in the world, makes products for such high-profile customers as Apple, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and Sony, among others. The company said it has peacefully settled the dispute, in which employees claimed they were denied compensation promised to them.Most of the workers who participated in the protest agreed to return to work following negations between the company and government officials, according to the newspaper. The company did not release details of the agreement. Forty-five employees resigned over the issue. (January 12, 1212)
