iPhone Plant Sees Another Apparent Suicide Worker found dead at plant in China this week By Michael Harthorne, Newser Staff Posted Aug 7, 2015 6:44 PM CDT 21 comments Comments In this 2010 file photo, visitors to a job fair walk past the Foxconn recruitment area in Shenzhen in south China's Guangdong province. (AP Photo, File) (Newser) – A 28-year-old worker at a Chinese plant responsible for making most of the new iPhones was found dead this week, and a nonprofit group is calling it a suicide, reports the Wall Street Journal. It wouldn't be the first time a Foxconn worker has killed himself; there was a string of well-publicized suicides in 2010. Since then, the company has been raising wages, implementing suicide prevention measures, and more to combat poor working conditions. This week's death happened at Foxconn's 200,000-worker production site in Zhengzhou.
