According to the Taiwan News, riot police clashed with protestors who attempted to disrupt the opening of Compusex by President Ma Ying-Jeou.
The protestors were apparently shouting “capitalists kill people” and brandishing pictures of the CEO of Foxconn, Terry Gou.
Foxconn – part of the Hon Hai conglomerate – makes a heap of stuff including iPhones, notebooks and the rest.
The giant has over 800,000 people working for it to make kit, but the suicide rate at Foxconn is apparently less than the number of suicides in the island state of Taiwan.
The working conditions aren’t supposed to be that good, however, with people putting in long hours for not very much money at all.
