As the US IT-giant is at all time high on Wall Street, 150 Chinsese workers threatened to jump off the roof of one factory owned by Apple Computer.
Last week, Apple released its sixth annual supplier responsibility report, which detailed violations made by its suppliers. In the same week, news surfaced that about 150 Chinese workers at a giant manufacturing plant that produces Microsoft’s Xbox 360 had threatened mass suicide by throwing themselves off their factory rooftop amid a labor dispute.
The incident involving one of Apple’s chief competitors took place at a Foxconn factory complex in Wuhan, roughly 600 miles from the better-known port city of Shenzhen. American media outlets carried a haunting photo showing dozens of workers assembled on a rooftop, with several standing at its edge.

The evil and cruelty within the Capitalist system is brilliantly exposed in this story.
The US Investors have shifted hundreds of billions of dollars into totalitarian China, to increase their profits. The fruits in the US has been mass unemployment and 40 million people falling below the poverty line.
The tyranny of Capitalism is hailed by the Chinese leadership. If a Chinese worker perish, there is always another waiting to get his job.
Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
Jesus the Messiah said there would come people exploiting the downcast. His students were told not to be concerned about the affairs of this world, but rather go and proclaim the gospel. Faith comes by hearing the Good News, about a Kingdom that is not of this wicked and evil Word.
