Chinese Companies Threaten To Fire Workers Who Buy iPhone 7

Under the guise of patriotism or treating unhealthy obsessions with pricey technology, Chinese companies are banning the newest iPhone. Some workers who own the device may even be forced to resign.

آ…those issuing the anti-iPhone edicts to their staff are claiming they are doing it for patriotic reasons. This is the case with one firm in Henan province called the Nanyang Yongkang Medicine Company, that issued a notice to its workers telling them not to buy the iPhone 7 or Iphone 7 Plus. "If you break this rule, then just come to the office straight way to hand in your resignation," the notice read. The policy was timed to coincide with commemoration of the 85th anniversary of Japanese troops invading north east China in 1931. "September 18th is a historical day. Don't forget the national humiliation and let's boycott foreign products," the company notice read.
