foxconn fire

Foxconn seems to be getting plenty of publicity lately, albeit not the kind that the company wants. After the many reports related to employee suicides, now rumor is going around that a fire broke out at one of the computer assembly plants. According to the rumors, about a dozen workers were injured, but they were treated inside the plant instead of being brought to a hospital, since the company is trying to avoid more negative news. Seems that the press were also barred from entering, which is understandable, considering the amount of flak the company has been taking recently. The fire was supposedly put out in half an hour, though workers might have been understandably worried, since most of the windows now have a protecting fence to prevent folks from making suicide jumps. What do you think is happening inside the Foxconn plant these days?
