4000 strike Foxconn in China
4000 workers walked off the job making Iphones in their Zhengzhou plant in Henan Province.
"China Labor Watch is reporting that another Foxconn strike broke out on Friday at the Zhengzhou factory in China. The report says 3,000 to 4,000 Foxconn (2038) are complaining about Apple's (AAPL) demanding quality standards for the iPhone 5. China Labor Watch further reports that workers are under immense pressure to deliver iPhone 5Ã¢ÂÂ²s without receiving adequate training on how to improve yield rates."
A brawl broke out last week with 2000 workers in their Taiyuan plant in Shanxhi province it's been closed since. The Taiyuan plant employees 79,000 workers!
According to Labor Watch Foxconn was attempting to improve working conditions & salaries. Looks like in Taiyuan it was too little too late.
