Workers at a factory that supply the iPhone's touch screen go on strike

Workers at a factory that supply the iPhone's touch screen go on strike
Apple is doing very well with their iPhone smartphones in light of some stiff competition, but there may be an impending shortage of the venerable smartphone. Workers went on strike at a touch screen supplier for Apple’s iPhone in the eastern city of Suzhou which is located in China.  It all started January 15 when 2,000 workers gathered at the location over a dispute about not receiving a planned bonus for 2009 from the factory. Workers feel that they were productive enough throughout the year to earn that bonus – it ultimately resulted in both the facility and vehicles being damaged. Still, there is no indication if this will adversely affect the sales of iPhones around the world. The plant belongs to the Taiwan-based Wintek Corp., the world’s largest touch screen maker for mobile phones.
