Re: You are NOT allowed to commit suicide: Workers in Chinese iPad factories forced to sign pledges
man's inhumanity to man, part IIIVXMM

The investigation report showed that during peak periods of demand for the iPad, workers were made to take only one day off in 13. Badly performing workers were humiliated in front of colleagues and workers are banned from talking and are made to stand up for their 12-hour shifts.

They said some workers put in 60 to 80 hours of overtime a month for minimum pay.

so fucking what? there are manufacturing jobs in the US that have the same conditions and they are not killing themselves over it. see we are stronger
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26101382


You're an idiot

and don't know all the details

these workers live in filth on site ; cockroaches everywhere

the conditions are much worse

If you knew anything about china ; you would know that

they don't have worker's rights, NO workers comp ; no Osca
regulations

sorry but i am going to say i know exactly what i am speaking of. so go fuck yourself. i am speaking of americans working like this. we have many right to work states and you don't have a fucking clue what that means. before i am jumped on i am not of either of the two parties.people work with dangerous chemicals 12 hour days and 60-88 hours of over time standing and have done this for years..so basically i don't give a fuck about china in that way because americans can do it and do it better..

And by NOT applying tariffs to all products from China we are all giving implicit approval to enslavement that WILL eventually be instituted in our own nations when we are inevitably broke and FORCED to compete with nations employing these practices.

you must have missed history because we had this in america the company store comes from that time and so unions. the wealth of the west was moved to asia so asia can suck it up or go knock down their government. americans worked hard and were abused then they fought i dare say little of that is left in them today. why isn't their fellow country men standing up for this hardship. you gotta pay to play and they is always someone who gets less. in every nation there is a bottom it just so happens china has more people so more throw away workers.

So what happens if a worker violates the pledge, and offs himself?

Do you demote the body?

Fire the body?

Prosecute the body?

I love cheap Chinese products at least for things that I expect to be disposable but would be willing to pay a bit more so these people weren't driven mad with exhaustion. They need a break and a living wage. God bless them.

Re: You are NOT allowed to commit suicide: Workers in Chinese iPad factories forced to sign pledges
oh don't worry about any of this. All of this will stop when americans become really poor and can't buy itoys any more. And when that happens, and all that money you gave china for all those itoys becomes worthless, then it will be YOUR CHILDREN that will be working in those trump american itoy factories making shit for the chinese instead .. and then we'll see what happens lol
