After violence broke out at Wistron’s iPhone manufacturing facility, the Taiwanese company has admitted to some of the allegations by the agitating workers. The violence at the factory is estimated to have cost the company $7 Mn.
Workers had complained about being underpaid and not even being paid for overtime hours at the Wistron facility. Videos of workers pelting stones at the factory quickly emerged on social media, with many parts of the unit seemingly set on fire.
The company said that its utmost priority is to fully compensate all the workers and has come up with various channels to address employees concerns.
