Hell on Earth?

You are NOT allowed to commit suicide: Workers in Chinese iPad factories forced to sign pledges
Factories making sought-after Apple iPads and iPhones in China are forcing staff to sign pledges not to commit suicide, an investigation has revealed.

At least 14 workers at Foxconn factories in China have killed themselves in the last 16 months as a result of horrendous working conditions.

Many more are believed to have either survived attempts or been stopped before trying at the Apple supplier's plants in Chengdu or Shenzen.
They had to put netting outside the worker dormitories to prevent jumping. How sad. Go Apple!
