Lol at all the Indians in this thread zealously defending their image and blame acts of violence and looting on Wistron, China, Communists and "the West".

It is these people who exploite labour and even qualified engineers and fleece them of their salaries and due share. Apple can not wash its hand from present fiasco wherein its employees are getting exploited by these contractors.

[deleted post]Agre with you completely
Family and friends aren't that imports and can be left

You can't just leave them
pankajupadhyay, 15 Dec 2020all said and understood. But they could have gone on strike for a week and the matter would ha... moreThese are contract labors
They don't have any union
They can easily be replaced
Strike helps only permanent employees
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2020Then they would've gone after the local contractor. Instead, they trashed the factory. Local contractor said their payment is getting delayed from the company. That's why they thrashed the company and apparently Company HRs also didn't do anything for their payments even on moral basis. Shame on them. These contractors need to put in jail.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2020Time to move to Vietnam or Thailand.They can't, India will just ban the import.
1. "company had made payments to the labour contractors"
2. "The labor department has issued notices to Wistron, stating that the company had three days to pay the employees"
I don't see why Wistron had to pay the employees directly.
Wistron -> labour contractors -> Employees. This is the business contracts.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2020Apple should pay their workers more. Apparently apple contracted Wistron to produce
Wistron contracted labor contractors for extremely cheap labor
Contractor didn't pay to its labors even overtime was unpaid
These poor workers were asking from a long time for their rightful payment and Wistron should have interfered and asked contractors to clear the dues but they didn't because they will get nowhere180$ a month cheap labour and there was some HR - labor contractors settings.
So When these labours didn't had anything to survive they took matters in their own hand. It was enevitable. You can only exploit someone to a point until they break completely. In other words you can call it slavery.
People talking about freedom of speech but apparently here they freqcensor your views if it is not in line with their political leanings....really sorry that I don't see big difference as such
Recently, Toyota factory in the same area witnessed similar riots, and in various parts of the country, Chinese agents (called as Urban Naxals, violent terror groups operate through unions and various communist parties having tactically understanding with the country toy's principle opposition party headed by the foreign lady who has apparently looted and parked many hundred billions in European safe heavans) As such India is a democratic set up unlike single party dictatorship in other countries where Apple can easily float rules and don't get caught with bad press. Having said that Left leaning media across the globe are in the pockets of Chinese and eager to report minor incidents in India out of proportions to create bad press for the current establishment. This partly politically and economically motivated incident, just like most of the recent years riots in India.
the tech nerd, 15 Dec 2020Should they just slave off instead????Slave off? No, they can refuse to work and protest
Not destroy private property and belongings
What will they get now? When they destroyed it all? Sooner or later, they’ll leave them to the streets or make them pay for the things they’ve done
Will this incident make international companies doubtful about starting a factory in India?
Conlany employed 90% contract labour and apparently contractor delayed the payments of the workers which is like 180 to 200$ per month including overtime. These people hardly make any money and don't have saving to survive more than a month. It was enevitable. This is clear case of employee exploitation and government need to review such loophole in labour practices. Apple has already asked wistron for clarification over their labour dues and investigation is going on all around. This is shameful for both indian government for such weak labour law and Wistron for ignoring the pain of its 90% contract employees.
[deleted post]if your cat refuse to move than you have to embrace the struggle.human, they are communicable.good thing i dont raise any cat
Wistron should realize they are not working in China anymore,maybe this happened in china too we just never get to know.Paying employee on time is must for such a big company and specially at today crisis
TheLastOracle, 15 Dec 2020Well said. its trade unions funded by foreign forces, that are behind the staged farm protests... moreSo there's a conspiracy behind every corner? Maybe it's just a result of faux democracy, poor governance and prevalent corruption that exists in India.
