Riot at Foxconn factory

Presto Vivace writes "One Thousand Foxconn Workers Riot At Chinese Dormitory

A dispute of unclear origin sparked a riot at a Chinese Foxconn plant, in which as many as 1,000 workers participated. For two hours, the workers threw bottles at security and destroyed property in the plant’s dormitory area before ultimately being subdued with the help of local law enforcement.

Retribution will be swift and terrible. I can only assume that conditions in the factory must be very bad indeed."
