Yup! So I guess they will be suing dead people right?

*Jumps of a building* Well ma'am, before you go into the burial ground, we need you to appear in court due to you voiding your contract.

There families perhaps?

No there isn't going to be any lawsuit or suing of some kind, not to their families too, it's just to make sure they are not thinking about it.

thats mind control and it wouldn't pass in the usa. its a shame that those 14 workers had to work in such bad conditions and basically become some type of martyrs for the world to take notice.

In some states, it's illegal to commit suicide. I never really seen anything being done, when people fail to kill themselves.

But, if a person wanted to die, let them, I don't see how it effects another, just maybe a companys reputation, but if it got to that point, maybe something is wrong with the company, and not the person.

Oh wow. Pure absurd comedy. Poor people they didn't choose to be born there...

Although Foxconn is actually one of the better places to work. It seems the suicide rate in other companies in much higher according a couple reports I read.

Sahil2000d ago

Yeah, I think it's just to assure that they are not thinking of that thought.
