Working conditions are OK

Earlier this week word surfaced that about 150 workers at a Chinese Foxconn plant where the Xbox 360 is built had threatened to jump from the roof to their death over being reassigned. Some of the early reports were conflicting, but it seems that now 45 of the workers on the line opted to quit and take a payment including salary and bonuses depending on how long they had been with the company.

Microsoft has now completed its investigation had is saying that the protest had nothing to do with working conditions. The protests were due to about 150 workers that didn’t want to be reassigned to new production lines.

Microsoft says that the reduction in production on the Xbox 360 is a normal production adjustment. None of the workers killed themselves and it's not clear if they all accepted reassignment or not at this time.
