Workers in China Protest Nokia-Microsoft Deal
It's tough to find just about any electronics these days that you can buy with a totally clear conscience, and things aren't exactly looking good for the new Nokia-Microsoft mega-corporation. Factory workers originally of Nokia, have taken to protesting outside of their place of work.
The protest was triggered by a new contract that the employees were apparently forced to sign. The new contract contains much worse terms of employment and that they'd ultimately be paid quite a bit less.
Reuters has the full story, as well as some comments from Nokia suggesting that the soon-to-be-bought company is in talks with the protesters. Given the abhorrent working conditions in general, stuff so bad that some workers commit suicide, I'm going to bet that the protesters aren't really asking for anything too unreasonable.
