Foxconn, makers of the iPhone as well as products for Sony, Nokia, Dell and Hewlett Packard, plans to automate much of its manufacturing load.
Last year they doubled wages after more than a dozen workers at its plant in southern China committed suicide. It was so bad, the factory had to install suicide nets from the rafters.
Now, after more reported suicides, the company has decided to increase its automated workforce from 10,000 robots to a million in 3 years. Hey, it's easier than raising wages again!
