    Default 1000 Foxconn workers start a riot at iPhone/iPad factory.



    Working conditions at Foxconn have been under fire lately. Tim Cook recently made efforts to improve the conditions for workers but apparently it wasnt enough. About one thousand workers rioted for hours over a small incident in Chengdu last night.

    Taiwans WantChinaTimes reports that Foxconn workers prevent security at Foxconn from catching a thief over a grudge they had with their employer. As you can imagine, this didnt sit well with anyone involved and the altercation quickly turned into a full-scale riot.

    The 1,000 rioting workers threw trash bins, bottles, and pots. They also lit off fireworks and destroyed public facilities. Needless to say, this wasnt a good situation. The riot happened in the upper floor of the dormitory and lasted for hours.

    It took an army of police to bring the rioting to a halt and dozens of workers were arrested.

    Despite Apples ongoing effort to improve conditions at Foxconn, employees obviously arent feeling the changes directly. Things need to get much better here or something even worse could happen. Though according to recent reports, the conditions havent changed one bit.

    Could you imagine a Foxconn factory being out of commission for any period of time? Something like that would have a MASSIVE impact on Apples inventory and production flow. Hopefully things get better for Foxconn workers soon.

    Maybe this was the wake up call everyone needed.

    People need better working conditions. They are not wild animals.

    These people are treated unfairly. I'm glad they finally said enough was enough.

    Heh. Industrial revolution. Even in the states, employers weren't afraid to fire people who protested against them.
