Foxconn resorts to exorcism

Serious suicide rates in the company


We’ve
seen a fair share of inexplicable and silly moves, but this one seems to take the cake. Foxconn, the company that needs no introduction, has allegedly resorted to exorcism in trying to deal with serious suicide rates within the company.

Eight Foxconn’s employees have taken their lives in 2010, with the ninth incident occurring only recenly. The most recent victim turns out to have fallen with already existing knife wounds, so it hasn’t been pegged as suicide, but it seems to have alerted the company officials.

It has been reported that the company’s chairman, Terry Guo has resorted to calling an exorcist, but we’re not sure of his findings.

We’re also not sure whether this danger extends to those purchasing Foxconn’s products but if you are a proud owner and do indeed feel quirky, immediately call an exorcist or change your motherboard. Or find a job with a higher pay, as we’ve heard that such a move, strangely enough, helps with feeling low.
