judgecorp writes: "Last week, workers at Taiwanese equipment maker FoxConn took to the roof and threatened to jump off during negotiations over pay and conditions at a factory making xbox 360s, at Foxconn Technology Park in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, China. The dispute apparently started when workers asked for a pay rise, and ended when the Wuhan mayor talked them down from the roof. Suicides at Foxconn were in the news in 2010, and last year, an explosion in a factory making iPads killed three workers."
