Looks like the economy is taking ahit in places outside America and even the Chinese are facing cutbacks. The Foxconn Xbox 36 factory in China recently had to deal with the threat of suicide by dozens of factory workers who were told the factory was closoing. Apparently the wokers were distraught over broken promises regarding their work contract and they REALLY needed those jobs.
Do you think that workers should be able to dicate company policy with threats of suicide?

According to reports, dozens of workers at a Chinese factory that assembles Xbox 360 consoles threatened to jump off a dormitory roof. The rooftop protest began on Jan 2, following plans to close the Xbox assembly line, with workers saying that Foxconn reneged on a promise to compensate anyone wanting to leave.
