Well this is just the kind of employer we welcome in Wisconsin.......NOT!!!

Foxconn is most known for its iPhone production. But it has also contracted with other major tech firms including Amazon's Kindle, Nintendo, Nokia, Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox.

But Foxconn also has a dismal record in terms of working conditions. In China, 18 workers in 2010 plunged from the tops of Foxconn buildings in protest, killing 14 and prompting the company to equip some of its facilities with safety nets. Two years later, 150 workers threatened to leap to their deaths in a mass suicide, but were coaxed down after spending three days atop the building.
