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.
