I Hope My Internet Marketing Boss Doesn't Expect the Same
According to a cnet article, a Chinese worker who was in charge of a prototype of the 4G iPhone recently committed suicide over the loss of the entrusted good. The Foxconn employee, Sun Danyoung, decided that his failure to maintain the whereabouts of the phone was too great an embarrassment. Sun was 25 and had come out of one of the poorer provinces in China with an MBA. He was in charge of shipping the 16 prototypes from Foxconn, Apple's manufacturing partner, to the head office in the states and ended up being one short.
Sun was subjected to searches and questioning which might have contributed to his unfortunate decision. Apple immediately told the press "We require our suppliers to treat all workers with dignity and respect."
