Today, another Foxconn employee leapt to his/her death from a Shenzhen window, despite the safety nets they erected several months ago—something our own Joel Johnson saw himself on his visit there last week. [Reuters]
These jobs are highly sought after, attracting the best and
brightest young people, who have studied hard, looking forward to a
good career and bright future. When they get there, what they
thought would be a perfect life, isn't perfect, and when they
realize that its not going to get any better, they don't know how
to handle it. I fear this is pretty common in the age range of the
workers, no matter where they are, we just hear about Foxconn
because of their high profile products.
No matter who you are, no matter where you are, please stay.
Someone loves you and cares about you, even if its just some lady
on the internet. I care, and I am not the only one.
