WTF! That's *bleep*ing illegal isn't it? I mean, setting up a fence so the workers can't jump off to their death?! Maybe you have to think about what makes them wanna jump instead of making them unable to kill themselves.. wtf.

So you'd rather let someone fall to their death you heartless prick? I'm all for suicide if there's no alternative but most people can be saved. The less people everyone has to deal with the better IMO but that's a whole 'nother story.

If I worked in a factory 6 days a week and lived in an isolated dorm, I'd want to kill myself too. Don't build the nets, jumping is the only way out for this subset of people who make up less than 1% of the entire factories workforce.

No, silly. Read my comment again. Instead of putting fences they should think of the reasons why the employees are wanting to commit suicide. But maybe these companies/manufacturers don't care about that..

Oh wow, I remember haring about this. The owner is Taiwanese, so it's big news in the community. Chinese media's really having a field day with this one. Sad, because you USED to hear a lot of praise for the guy as he pays higher than other factories in China and offers better living conditions/benefits.

Now look at what's going on...

P.S. For those who don't know, factory workers in China generally live in dorms built on the facility grounds and eat at the cafeteria. Each factory is like a small town.

This is still better than what they'd get if they worked in the fields.
