@4, and @8, where do you get these numbers? The chinese government is as interested as the factories in making sure it looks like there are no problems at the factories. You don't string suicide nets around buildings and stairwells if there isn't an underlying problem.
The issues here are that daisey lied about first hand experiences, nobody disputes the issues he raises are serious problems in china.

This is really stupid as has been said because the point is lost that in fact there are terrible factory conditions in China, and being rapidly expanded to Vietnam in a search for lower labor prices. FoxConn, FoxLink and Flextronics the big 3 electronics manufacturers, Taiwanese owned by the way, and they have US presence as well, are not where massive labor abuses are happening. This fabrication makes americans say "Oh I heard he lied about that" when the real problems are moving out of China and further up the supply chain.
