PostSubject: Chinese iPhone 5 workers strike over increased quality control demands, holiday work   Sat 06 Oct 2012, 7:09 pm

I wonder if they knew how much those iPhones sold for, if they would wake up and demand more money for making them. Only then, would those jobs be brought back to North America.

Chinese iPhone 5 workers strike over increased quality control demands, holiday work

BEIJING, China - A labour watch group says thousands of workers at a Chinese factory that makes Apple's iPhones have gone on strike over increased quality control demands and having to work during an extended national holiday.

New York-based China Labor Watch says several iPhone 5 production lines at Foxconn's Zhengzhou factory are paralyzed after 3,000-4,000 workers went on strike after finding the new demands difficult to meet. They're also angry they were being forced to work during the Golden Week holiday.

Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group manufactures iPhones in China. The iPhone 5 debuted in September.

China Labor Watch says workers beat quality control inspectors, who also carried out a work stoppage after management ignored their complaints.

Last month, a brawl involving 2,000 workers broke out at Foxconn's factory in China's Taiyuan city
