The 2,000 workers involved will perhaps reap the benefits , triple time overtime, to churn out more apple products ... but realistically ... I think they will all be fired.

In China they could end up inside. That is one very big factory with 79,000 workers.

This is quite a small Foxconn plant.

The Shenzhen site is the size of a small city, with reports suggesting between 250,000 & 450,000 staff on site.

For a company founded less than 40 years ago, Foxconn has grown into the world's 10th biggest employer, just behind Indian Railways and the Indian Army http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17429786

I'm glad it didn't happen in South Africa. I'd imagine the workers would have been machine-gunned by the police.
