To a conservative audience (U.S. edition): Makes sense that those lazy good-for-nothing libs who want the government to do everything for them would take more time off instead of earning more through their own hard work!

To a liberal audience: Figures that that uptight band of sticks-in-the-mud cons would spend so much time working to earn and hoard their precious blu-ray players and their 51" plasma screen tvs!

Your iPad Assemblers Are Dancing "The Robot"

Worst office dance party ever. Also, while it's nice for Foxconn to imply "none of you will ever ever get laid off just because we're having robots do your jobs instead," does it really work that way? When you're moving "higher up the value chain," usually that implies more training or education. Are you really going to train over a million workers, Foxconn? Terrible working conditions suck, but so does getting laid off of a job that you were desperate enough to hang on to.

I guess the moral is that when you complain you're being treated like robots, consider whether or not you could be a robot and still be capable of doing your job.
