Hundreds of workers at Foxconn in China, where the world’s biggest Apple’s biggest factory is, protested on Wednesday, breaking out of their dorms and clashing with the police.
The violent clashes took place at the Foxconn plant in central China’s Zhengzhou where tough COVID-19 restrictions are in place after a spike in infections in recent months. The protests, which reportedly started overnight, are over unpaid wages and the spread of infection.
The huge facility of some 2 lakh workers - dubbed "iPhone City" - has been operating in a "closed loop" bubble.
