Another Foxconn Worker Dies, Family Blames Overwork

A worker at iPhone maker *Foxconn's southern China manufacturing hub, the scene of a string of employee suicides this year, died late last week from what his family said was overwork, a claim the company denied.
Yan Li, a 27 year old engineer, died suddenly at his home early on May 27, according to a statement from China Labour Watch, a U.S.-based activist organisation.
The statement said that according to his family, Yan Li had been working the night shift for more than a month straight, sometimes working 24 hours non-stop.
Taiwan contract electronics maker *
Hon Hai Precision Industry**, the owner of Foxconn, said in a separate statement that it did not see the death as work-related.

That's another reason why I am not crazy about Iphone.
