Foxconn employees go on strike as Apple demands higher iPhone 5 quality control

VR Zone wrote yesterday that two to three thousand Foxconn employees went on strike because Apple demanded higher production quality for the iPhone 5. The new quality control regulations went into effect because Apple customer complained about scratches on new iPhone 5 smartphones, but Foxconn employees are fed up with the overly strict demands.
As reported by Bloomberg, thousands of workers went on strike due to “overly strict” quality standards for the iPhone 5 set by Apple. The standards had been raised to the point where employees had to work through a holiday week. The quality control increase was put in place because iPhone 5 customers complained that the device had imperfections such as scratches on them.

“Foxconn raised overly strict demands on product quality without providing worker training for the corresponding skills,” China Labor Watch said in a statement. “This led to workers turning out products that did not meet standards and ultimately put a tremendous amount of pressure on workers.”
