Along with the launch of the iPad, many stories broke of the suicides at the Foxconn factory where many Apple products are built and manufactured.
Apple investigated Foxconn after complaints were made in 2006, in particular focusing on bad employment practices and workers spending too long building products and not having enough time off. However, Foxconn did announce that it would bring in counsellors to better 'support its workers'.
Only a few weeks ago, an explosion at the iPad-building plant killed at least two and injured over a dozen. The iPad stock may be affected.
Though many of the companies who use the plant have promised to investigate, little has come to fruition.
