Foxconn seeks aid of monks to stop suicides

Posted on Friday, May 14 2010 @ 23:00:03 CEST by

Foxconn has invited monks from one of the most sacred Buddhist shrines to pray for a positive working environment at the company's factory in Shenzhen, China, after a female employee committed the sixth suicide at the plant this year. More info at Times Online.
Foxconn Technology, the world’s biggest contract maker of electronics, has been forced to answer allegations about the welfare of employees in China after its sixth worker committed suicide this year.

The company, part of the giant Hon Hai Group, has a factory with more than 300,000 workers in Shenzhen, a southern Chinese city, where this week, a 24-year-old worker jumped from her rented apartment.

The suicides have prompted Foxconn management to invite monks from Wutai Mountain, one of the most sacred Buddhist shrines, to pray for a positive working environment.

Liu Kun, director of Foxconn’s press office, told China Daily: “The victims’ families asked us to bless the dead and release their souls from suffering, and we will do everything we can to prevent such accidents in the future.”
DigiTimes on the other hand claims Foxconn chairman Terry Guo has sought the said of an exorcist, but we believe this is likely a translation error..
