All Apple contracted plants are utter shyt for workers. But the real cost is in billions of dollars now that foreign companies will be scared to set up their companies here for manufacturing. Lots of companies are looking to shift from China to India and poverty politics is coming in front of development.

That’s because the government isn’t as iron willed to thwart all dissent as CCP is.

I don’t know if it’s implemented in the rest of the country or not but in Assam on March-April 2020, the business lobby here passed a backward bill that would raise inhumane treatment against workers. Eg. Removing sick leave, maternity leave, accident claims, minimum wage, etc
And the govt is against the poor for some reason.
The same thing has happened recently in Indonesia and worker unions and students protested heavily.
For sick reasons, the US newspapers are very disappointed with the protesters protesting for their rights.
Their double standards even in this century are just mind blowing.
Also I think company has exaggerated their claims, similar to amazon india claims of losses, for tax evasion reasons expressionless

When there are so many employee, there would be union. and where is union, Govt not take any action and attache it to vote bank.
There were around 80 textiles mills in Ahmedabad before 2-3 decades. Now i think 3-4 are running. i heard that every now and then workers were going on strike. At that time textiles
mill job was reputed job. Politicians using union for political benefit but when such big business unit closed, thousands of people becoms jobless.

Only China can handle such large manufacturing unit. because no such unon can ask any wrong demand.

Apple will most probably disable these iPhones remotely. They did it once earlier when a shipment was looted (not in India).

The employee’s were not paid salary for three months, that was more inhuman act. When there is nothing to eat theft and loot are the only option for the daily labourer.
Also we don’t know the true situation at the site it might be local goons who have broken the furniture and company exaggerated the loss.

Clear case of Sabotage. The unions are all controlled by leftists and they are being used effectively by their CCP masters. Remember the incident last month where a Chinese national tried to break the equipment. The workers are all quite young and easy to rile up. But the issue was also blown over by archaic Labour laws in our country. No company with more than 300 employees can fire anyone without govt. approval. So wistron recruited a lot of employees through contractors. These contractors didn’t even have a HR and didn’t pay pay salaries on time. Also allegedly there was a software bug in the attendance logging tool which marked absent even on days when workers were present. All these factors were exploited by the union leaders to create issues. You have to see this incident in the light of govt ’s PLI scheme which has already received billions in FDI directly at the expense of China and already 50 cent army aka Chinese bots in twitter are gleaning about this.

On a different forum, read a comment from someone familiar with employees of Wistron’s production line in Mexico.

They seem follow the same hire and fire or underpaying tactics in Mexico as well. But the people there don’t stand up to this. Also in Mexico they have 2 production buildings in the same compound, one full of Chinese workers, who are brought over to mexico and the other building where the local Mexicans work. They don’t let the employees from these 2 buildings interact with each other, so they don’t get to know who is getting paid what. The Chinese employees are paid in the Chinese currency and their contracts are signed in china.

Probably their same arm twisting tactics won’t work with our desi breed.

Engineering graduates promised 22k salary, not even paid half of it, made to work overtime with no extra compensation
last 3 months no salary for many, what else do you expect to happen?
I can understand a company making losses and not paying salaries, here apple is one of the most profitable companies with the highest cash reserve
All they want slave labour, and they are served instant karma
