There must be some problem with that factory. Do they abuse workers or anything?

Foxconn has a number of employees equivalent to the population of the US state of Wyoming, which had 101 suicides in 2007 * [1]. What's interesting is that its rate of suicide is higher than that of all but 3 states; it was even #1 in 2006. "There must be some problem with that state"?

By comparison, D.C. also has roughly the same population and 36 suicides, and it also has the lowest rate of suicide when compared to the states. Still more than Foxconn, even if the suicide trend continues through the year to reach 20.

Something to consider!
