Recent suicides at the Foxconn factory in China makes Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, speak out to the public. There were a total of 13 suicides at the factory just this year. Jobs says that Foxconn is in no way a sweat shop and wants to do something about this, as he spoke to a crowd at the All Things Digital Conference this week. Jobs says it may be a factory but it is nice with restaurants, a pool, a hospital and movie theatres. Foxconn plans on giving all employees at the factory a 30% raise in hopes the standard of living will improve for them and allow them all a little extra time off to keep up good health.
