Before the premiere iPhone 7, the Chinese company has involved tens of thousands of workers to build smartphones. While employees are working seven days a week 14 hours a day, which affects their mental state. With hard working conditions, link the death of 31-year-old man, who committed suicide in the production plant.
The next day, another Foxconn worker on the way to company was hit by a train. Observers believe that this incident is the cause of the company policy against employees. Late work is severely penalized, but because they are often forced to risk their lives to make it in time for work.
At the moment in that region of China, where the incident occurred, there are transportation problems due to floods. The victim Chen Jifang tried to cross flooded railway tracks, but did not and fell under the train.
