    Really sad that someone was driven to suicide over unpaid wages

    I would be very surprised if the chinese authorities didn’t do something about this

  3. Irena Rydberg says:

    If this is true the owners of the company should face the death penalty because someone has died because of them

  4. Stacie Greer says:

    The injuries looked pretty bad. I hope everyone makes a full recovery

  5. Shandra Barlett says:

    Do employee’s rights even exist in china? I hope they do and the government takes strong action against this company if the reports are true

  6. Lavonda Vallo says:

    Shocking that the only option this guy had left was to take his own life. Hopefully his family will be looked after

  7. Samella Discher says:

    So many other people were injured in this incident. Surely there was a better way for him to vent his anger at the company, which didnt hurt other innocent people

  8. Winona Mcgarity says:

    I hope this kind of stuff doesn’t happen again

  9. Helena Kennedy says:

    China seems to be doing more for human rights as the countries wealth increases.

    Hopefully now this company will be held accountable for their actions
