Chinese police have been beatings workers protesting over working conditions and pay at the biggest factory for iPhones.
The protest in Zhengzhou began Tuesday and lasted through to Wednesday morning as thousands of workers gathered outside dormitories.
Thousands of employees walked away from the factory last month after complaints about unsafe working conditions. Replacement workers who had travelled long distances to take jobs at the factory complained that the company changed the terms of their pay.
“Foxconn released very tempting recruiting offers, and workers from all parts of the country came, only to find they were being made fools of,” one protester said.
Foxconn said that a “technical error” was responsible for the confusion over pay.
