"Suicides at Foxconn won't do Apple any good"
It shouldn't do the Palm Pre, much good either, since the Pre is made by Chi Mei Communication Systems... a majority-owned subsidiary of Foxconn International Holdings. Sony Ericson have longstanding deals with Foxcon, too.
You can make your phones from recycled plastic, all you want, and still be an absolute bastard.
However, there's no real evidence to suggest that Foxconn - for all its status as a scarily vast multinational, that is responsible for making just about everything anyone actually wants to own, on the planet - is actually a bad employer to work for (as city-sized, self-contained assembly plants go, that is).
Consider this, if Sony Ericsson actually did make phones in Scandinavia, the chances are the plant would have a high suicide rate, simply by dint of employing Scandinavians.
