  1. "and Apple is trying to relocate more of its manufacturing within the United States as well."

    Actually Foxconn manufactures iGizmos for Apple.

    Anyway, maybe Foxconn's suicide rate will be lower in Pennsylvania ;)
  2. Are they going to install suicide nets here too or is that just a China thing?
  3. Kudos to Foxxcon.. more job locally... ;)
  4. "The company also plans to provide $10 million to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh to help in robotics research."

    cheap labor will go the way of the dinosaur
  5. "Anyway, maybe Foxconn's suicide rate will be lower in Pennsylvania ;) "

    Considering the actual rate of suicide for the foxconn plant was actually lower than the US general populace I would not hold my breath. The media just go a hold of a number and decided it was interesting.

    That is true. But what was so alarming about it was the number of suicides occurring at the same place, nearly all by the same method, and nearly all for the same reasons.

    So kids will be able to go home and see their parents, sunshine, feel the breeze and finally die peacefully with no regrets while thanking Foxconn for the best day of their life? *shred tears of joy*
  8. Funny thing is, the suicide rate at Foxconn is actually lower than all 50 US states (per 100,000 people).
  9. You guys are joking too much about the "suicide" thing.
  10. Low cost countries are getting higher in cost . . . its Japan all over again. . . . just 40 years later. Hiring in Shanghai is no longer that cheap.
  11. Globalization is a good thing, and in this case, especially for the potential workers in the PA job market.
  12. What's pannsylvania? lol
