What capitalists really think of their workers

Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn's CEO Terry Gou said while introducing a zoo-keeper to his senior managers at a party that the zoo-keeper might have some good advice for his senior managers because "Hon Hai (Foxconn) has a workforce of over one million worldwide and as human beings are also animals, to manage one million animals gives me a headache," adding that he wants to learn from Chin Shih-chien, director of Taipei Zoo, regarding how animals should be managed.
As Chin lectured on the stage, sharing his experience with the audience on how to manage different animals according to their individual temperaments, Gou listened carefully and asked Chin to put himself in his place as the chairman of Hon Hai, to the amusement of the 12 general managers of the group present.
