Foxconn Technology, which manufactures devices for some of the most prominent technology companies, including Apple, is often criticised for poor working conditions in its Chinese factories. A recent incident, apparently involving a security officer and a worker, sparked off a huge fight which escalated into a mass brawl involving about 2,000 workers.
It seems the incident began in a dormitory near the Taiyuan manufacturing facility in Shanxi province, where 79,000 workers are based. 5,000 police were drafted in to quell the riot. Foxconn claimed the dispute was not work related.
