I'm just hoping to move enough units to get my stool placed right-side up.

Well, at least you don't need anyone to push it in for you.

When I worked in electronics manufacturing, I sat on an uncomfortable stool, too.

/I'm glad she got her chair.

Your next iProduct is going to cost an extra $3 per unit because of this.

Other reforms were more personal. Protective foam sprouted on low stairwell ceilings inside factories. Automatic shut-off devices appeared on whirring machines. Ms. Pu got her chair. Her required boss appreciation blow job was reduced from every other day to just once a week.

I prefer the stool. When I kick it out from under me, it's more likely to fall over. Do you know how embarrassing it is when they find you trying to hang yourself and you've got one toe keeping you from falling and ending this miserable life? And they just laugh at you until you collapse, and only then do they cut you down.

I am always sitting in stool.

Sheesh, they got nets strung on the buildings so they can't kill themselves and disrupt the shift, and now they want freakin' chairs?

Stools? Chairs? What're they some kind of socialists? Real 'merikans stand all day or get fired!

"The managers of this 164,000-employee factory, she surmised, believed that comfort encouraged sloth."

Meaning, in China, employers have not been as well protected from themselves.

American CEO/CFO's typically have the identical mentality. They just don't have the freedom to be as stupid and out-of-touch.

Stick before stool, then chair, then your legs are cut off and you're permanently welded to your workstation - except for the qa team, who get fitted with wheels.

I was envisioning hourly workers being used as furniture.

Pretty sure I've seen hentai like that before. The article was rather disappointing by comparison especially with Foxconn's reputation. If it doesn't involve body warping sex demons it isn't going to impress me. Yeah, China's companies suck compared to ours. They couldn't compete with us any other way.

Didya notice the mention that some of their machines got automatic shut-offs, too?

/Golly-gee-whiz!

Calvin Candie foxconn ceo: I've been surrounded my entire life by black poor faces. I only have one question: Why don't they just rise up and kill the whites rich?

You mean there is a chance for a raise coming? As in raise we're talking one of those chairs with the lift cylinders, right?
Or sprouting foam?
