A manufacturer of Apple products in China has apparently made workers sign a no-suicide pact.

And if they do, their families can't come after the factory's money. This comes after a spate of suicides last summer revealed the workers were forced to put in 15 and 20-hour days -- in appalling conditions.

While Apple and several other companies have said the conditions have improved dramatically -- workers rights group say this new pact is a slap in the face for workers still being mistreated.
