Apple Inc’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Asian supply chain has been rocked by protests in both China and India over unpaid wages and bonuses, the Financial Times reported Sunday. What Happened: On Friday and Saturday, more than 100 workers on the iPhone maker’s assembly lines protested in China over unpaid bonuses, according to FT.
The demonstration against Taiwanese Pegatron Corporation was centered around unpaid bonuses of RMB 10,000 ($1,530) each, according to China Labor Watch.
The workers raised the slogan, “Give us back our blood and sweat money,” as per a video seen by FT.
Last week, Apple workers in India vandalized a factory of Taiwan’s Wistron Corporation and claimed they were brutally “exploited.”
Why It Matters: Apple’s Asian workers are demonstrating at a time when the Cupertino, California-based tech giant is striving to boost iPhone production by 30%.
The tech giant has asked its suppliers to manufacture between 95 to 96 million iPhones, including the latest iPhone 12 models, as per Nikkei Asia.
After investigating the incidents in India, Apple said over the weekend that it would halt “new business” with Wistron until it took “corrective action.”

I’m sure a lot of those stim deposits will get spent at the Apple store, so get busy you proles...
Those workers in cinder-block housing with nets to catch those trying to commit suicide are getting uppity.
Apple. Slave drivers. Oh so holier-than-thou but underneath the veneer nothing more than a gang of pirates.
“We were unaware of these conditions”.

If your supply chain runs through the shithole countries of India and Communist China, it’s to be expected. Eff Apple.
the beatings will continue until morale improves
Looks like Obama is getting revenge on Apple even tacitly supporting Trump.
Yep. Just waiting on this next &900+ B stimulus bill, then Apple will get right on those bonuses. (As a temporary bonus, their bosses will pull back the foreskin first.)
Apple, dealing with cultures of thieves and pirates. Fookery ensues. Here’s my shocked face.
With corrupt State gov and high crime rate, I am not sure Apple wants to move in there. Maybe Southern Indiana or Kentucky but not Chicago.
To complement local architecture, the new buildings in Chicago could be made without windows, but just have plywood motifs where the windows would normally be.
FTA: Apple said over the weekend that it would halt “new business” with Wistron until it took “corrective action.”
You know what that means! More organ donations!
They will be thrown off the roof of the factory and this time no suicide nets will be in the way!
