BBC News looks at who has the most employees

The US Department of Defense has most then the Chinese army and then Walmart and MacDonalds.

Foxconn became notorious in 2010 when news spread that 10 of its workers had committed suicide.

Although these deaths were tragic, an understanding of how massive an employer the company is makes you realise that this isn’t the shockingly high number it seemed.

Suicide rates in China have been put at 15 per 100,000 people per year. The controversial Foxconn factory employed around 400,000 people.

Ten suicides per 400,000 people isn’t unusually high. It’s unusually low for China.
