There should be an image here!I cannot express how thrilled I am to see Foxconn tackling its employees’ moral issues with such intense, caring hearts. Yes folks, Foxconn has installed — get this — NETS to catch employees who might decide to jump to their deaths. Boy, now that is someplace I want to work!

To say that this has me left speechless would be an understatement. The fact that working for this company (and likely others in the same field) has people jumping off of buildings is a cry for needed changes, not freaking nets!

Look, I think it’s special that buying Apple products is sending people to new employment opportunities overseas. But for the love of Pete, find a way to motivate and encourage a better work environment instead of simply installing nets to deal with workplace suicide. Come on, Foxconn, and to a lesser degree, Apple. Let’s work on this!
