Fábrica dos iPhones em greve

Large-scale Strike of iPhone 5 Production Lines at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou Factory (China Labor Watch):
China Labor Watch (CLW) announced that at 1:00PM on October 5 (Beijing time), a strike occurred at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory that, according to workers, involved three to four thousand production workers. In addition to demanding that workers work during the holiday, Foxconn raised overly strict demands on product quality without providing worker training for the corresponding skills. This led to workers turning out products that did not meet standards and ultimately put a tremendous amount of pressure on workers. Additionally, quality control inspectors fell into to conflicts with workers and were beat up multiple times by workers. Factory management turned a deaf ear to complaints about these conflicts and took no corrective measures. The result of both of these circumstances was a widespread work stoppage on the factory floor among workers and inspectors.

E mais, devo dizer que normalmente vasculho as caixas de comentários e é normal encontrar "clientes" a dizer que pagariam mais 5% ou 10% para os direitos laborais dos operários chineses serem respeitados. Em suma, faz lembrar o magnífico vídeo do Zizek (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpAMbpQ8J7g) que é obrigatório para combater esta falsa "consciência" do consumidor no capitalismo moderno.
