With great precision comes great responsibility. And recently news have been spreading about Foxconn workers going on strike at iPhone 5 factory. The reason given for this was the undue pressure exerted on them to perfect the manufacturing process of the iPhone 5. Naturally they wilted and as a result there was a strike at iPhone 5 factory which has gotten wide coverage all over the internet in the past few days.
Foxconn has now made an official statement and in a surprisingly anti-climatic manner they’ve denied all reports of a strike at iPhone 5 factory. They do however admit there were small quarrels and misunderstandings that were handled there an then and corrective measures were taken. Other than that conditions at the Foxconn factory are normal and things are going as planned, or as normal as it has recently been in Foxconn factories.
The secrecy level at these factories makes it difficult to take Foxconn’s word without any doubts, especially when there have been so many reports to the contradictory. Foxconn has been under hot waters recently due to the poor working conditions for workers. Let’s hope this was an isolated incident and doesn’t repeat itself and Foxconn continues to make great products.
