Workers in Chinese factories forced to sign pledges

Anti suicide net
After a spate of suicides last year, managers at the factories ordered new staff to sign pledges that they would not attempt to kill themselves, according to researchers.

And they were made to promise that if they did, their families would only seek the legal minimum in damages.




This was done mostly for the fact that quite a few people saw suicide in those places as a quick way to earn money for their families ..... its damn depressing reading these things and seeing how much people get payed and in what kind of conditions they have to live in there.
