Foxconn workers question why hours are being cut after FLA review (http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/12/03/30/foxconn_workers_question_why_hours_are_being_cut_a fter_fla_review.html) <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Another worker from Hunan, 25-year-old Chen Yamei, said she and others are there to "work and not to play." She has been an employee at Foxconn for four years, and earns about $634 per month.

"We have just been told that we can only work a maximum of 36 hours a month of overtime," she said. "I tell you, a lot of us are unhappy with this. We think that 60 hours of overtime a month would be reasonable and that 36 hours would be too little."
</div></div>That seems to be backfiring a little bit.

Actually the company has promised to increase wages to make up for the difference. It might mean that the next flat screen tv or PC you buy might cost 5$ more, can you live with that?
