Workers protest at Foxconn plant in China

A group of workers at a Foxconn factory in China have staged a protest over pay, according to a newspaper report

Workers at a Chinese factory owned by Foxconn, Apple's main manufacturer, threatened to jump off the roof of a building in a protest over wages just a month after the two firms announced a landmark agreement on improving working conditions, and in a repeat of an incident in January.

In a report over the weekend, the The Times of India said that the protest happened at one of Foxconn's plants in the central city of Wuhan.

The news daily added that the protest involved some 200 workers, according to Hong Kong-based activist group Information Centre for Human Rights. The group said that one of their complaints was that they earned less in Wuhan than they had in their previous jobs. They returned to work after police intervened, it said.
