Foxconn: Working Conditions Haven't Improved Over the Years

Foxconn: Working Conditions Haven't Improved Over the Years

In the wake of the tragic news about 25-year-old Foxconn employee, Sun Danyoung, who fell to his death after an iPhone prototype went missing, authorities are now turning the tables on the billion dollar electronics manufacturer to further investigate the incident and company practices in general. Foxconn is not only responsible for producing products like the iPod, Mac mini and iPhone for Apple, but it also manufacturers items for Nintendo, Amazon, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Sony. Danyoung had told friends that he was beaten and humiliated by the factory's security team before his death, which was an alleged suicide. Foxconn has already paid Danyoung's family $44,000 and given his girlfriend a new Apple laptop, but the incident has sparked a ton of criticism about the company and its working conditions, which include excessive working hours and deplorable food and living quarters.

The following photos are from September 2006, when more than 180 workers contracted food poisoning at Foxconn's factory in Shenzhen, China. One can only hope that justice is served in the case of Sun Danyoung and that the company makes some major changes to its working conditions and treatment of employees.
