Thin Line Between Stupid and Clever

Opining on Whatever

“I will not commit suicide while making your iPod.”

In order to address the 16 committed suicides in 16 months by its employees, evil manufacturing plant Foxconn is now requiring its employees to pledge that they will not commit suicide. Nothing prevents suicide like the thought of breaking an entirely symbolic promise made to a company which is almost entirely the reason you want to commit suicide in the first place. No need to address the terrible working conditions that are driving these people to commit suicide to begin with.  A simple pledge should do it.
