Foxconn Factory Reopens After Brawl

It looks as though Foxconn is back open after the riot that broke out between the inmates over the weekend. Did I say inmates? Whoops! I meant workers. As a bonus, the workers not injured or involved in the rioting were granted the privilege of working extra shifts to clean up the broken glass and overturned cars. eek!

Foxconn Technology Group and police said the cause of the unrest Sunday night was under investigation, but labor activists said the rollout of the iPhone 5 has led to longer working hours and more pressure on workers. Foxconn and police said as many as 2,000 employees were involved in the brawl and 40 people were reported injured.
