News Factory Riots in China Spur 60-Day MacBook Pro Delays

Factory employee riots are also mentioned in the United News Network report; however, we don't get much detail about these events. Riots were presumably about the working conditions, with employees doing extended shifts, living, sleeping and eating on the premises. It sounds like some were pushed too far from an acceptable work-life balance and missed home life.
So Apple's slave labor is revolting? How will they continue to sell their products with such large profit margins?

Though I would not be surprised if the "riots" were largely down to people getting quarantined alongside others without proper medical treatment or just other necessities, and being locked in the facility and not allowed to leave. The country has a tendency of being rather heavy-handed with attempts to control the populace, and being locked in cramped factory dorms might not be much different from being in a prison.
