Journal chill's Journal: Dozens Arrested After Riot at Foxconn Factory 5

Dozens of workers at a Foxconn plant in Chengdu, China were arrested this week after a clash with security staff, according to a report.
Taiwan-based Want China Times (WCT) reported that the clash broke out Monday night at a male dormitory for Foxconn workers. Security guards had attempted to stop a thief, when several employees with grudges against the officers forced them away.
The situation rapidly escalated, and up to 1,000 workers eventually joined in.

How long before the Chinese workers form real unions and clash with the gov't? That would be ironic. A communist gov't fighting a union.
