What is the effect of poor working conditions in Chinese urban manufacturing units on the health of their employees? Labor Stress Physical Stress Emotional Stress Very Strict Supervisors Physical Punishments

Embarrass Employees Low Wage $1.30 U.S Dollars Daily

$38.87 U.S Dollars Monthly Time of Work 15 hours of daily work

6 days a week

They are forced to do extra shifts.

Forced extra time work to earn additional money. Physical Stress + Emotional Stress + Labor Stress = 14 suicides in the past 18 months. Unethical Exercises Morning Exercises consist of Push-Ups and others.

It is very similar to military training. Lack of Hygiene 100 people sleep per room

Clothes are washed in pails of water Poor farmers come to the city to earn more than what they get at home, in rural areas. They do not manage, however, to help their families as much as they hoped. Isolated from the Exterior No visitors Not even can the mother, the father, siblings, or close people can come in. Surveillance cameras and guards watch the main gates Foxconn is surrounded by barbed wires. (In response, Foxconn made an anti-suicide contract for employees) A worker, before suicide because he lost an iPad Prototype. It looks fancy, doesn't it? Explosion. 3 deaths. Suicide. 1 of 14.

This is one of the many problems, because people respond to the big Apple logo instead of the other music industries. Justify. Inform - Cheap labour is available. - Majority of Foxconn employees are farmers that
have moved into the city. - Main factory is located in Longhua, China. - Run by a company called Foxconn. - Work for 15 hours a day, 7 days a week. - No family or friends allowed to see workers. - Foxconn has ALOT of influence over the Chinese government. Should we care? - Governments job is to protect the general welfare. - The government passed a law stating, "...the legislationlimits overtime, sets minimum wages and requires one month's pay for each year worked for dissmissed employees..." (New York Times) - Government still needs to do more to protect their rights. - Hygenic lavatories, increased wage, work pressure
decrease, and NO MORE SUICIDES! By:
