iPhone factory workers in India vandalize office over unpaid salaries


Worker protests at an iPhone manufacturing plant in India have caused up to $7 million in damages over unpaid salaries, Reuters reports.

Workers at the plant, owned by the Taiwanese-based company Wistron, say they haven’t been paid what they were promised and are demanding better working conditions.

The Times of India has several on-the-ground reports and dramatic video of the protests. The news outlet reports, “A majority of the nearly 2,000 employees, who were exiting the facility after completing their night-shift, went on a rampage destroying the company’s furniture, assembly units and even attempted to set fire to vehicles.”
