After the night of the night shift, a coarse part of the almost 2000 workers have demolished the inventory as well as assembly systems of the work and tries to put vehicles on fire as local media report. The work in the near bengaluru belongs to the taiwanese ordinary wistron, who builds there, among others apple’s iphone se.
Rice wage supposedly leads to violence
According to information of the times of india if the violation of the violation of wage cheeks is to return: employees have been promised at the employment a monthly salary of approximately 230 euros, but were actually just under 180 euros and in recent months then only good 130 euros. The payments had further reduced each month and thus led to a considerable frustration, quotes the newspaper an employee. After some workers had seen only a wage receipt of around 5 euros, the anger was turned into violence.
