Między styczniem a  sierpniem 2010  r. 17 pracowników Foxconnu podjęło próby samobójcze, co doprowadziło do śmierci 13 młodych ludzi. Foxconn, firma z  miasta Shenzhen na południu Chin, produkuje iPhone’y. Niektóre organizacje zajmujące się prawami pracowników wzywają branżę elektroniczną, aby wykazała się przywództwem, biorąc odpowiedzialność za zapewnienie godziwych standardów pracy robotnikom w  globalnym łańcuchu dostaw produktów elektronicznych. Niniejszy artykuł próbuje zbadać zarówno wyzwania stawiane menedżerom pod względem równoważenia wydajności i  współczucia, jak też wartość pracy dla nowego pokolenia migrujących robotników w  warunkach zmieniających się struktur gospodarczych Chin.

Between January and August of 2010, seventeen workers at Foxconn had attempted to commit suicide - resulting in the death of thirteen young people. Foxconn, in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, is an iPhone maker. Some labor rights organizations urged the electronics industry to show leadership by taking responsibility for decent labor standards for the workers in the global electronics supply chain. The report from Students and Scholars against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM), a labor rights organization in Hong Kong, finds that Foxconn's labor practices are illegal and unethical. This paper attempts to explore managers' challenges to balance between efficiency and compassion as well as the value of work for the new generation of migrant worker in China under changing Chinese economic structures. The new generation of migrant workers is different from their parents' generation in terms of their backgrounds, their work-life expectations, and their awareness of labor rights. The electronics industry should recognize that the problems at Foxconn do not stand alone; the suicides represent the tip of an iceberg of labor issues that occur throughout the global electronics supply chain. From the corporate social responsibility perspectives, name brand companies and contract manufactures should take responsibility for labor rights abuses and take concerted actions.
