After weeks of being locked down, workers clash with guards at an Apple supplier's factory in Shanghai

After Weeks of Being Locked Down, Workers Clash With Guards at an Apple Supplier's Factory in Shanghai

Hundreds of workers have clashed with guards. A large contingent, worried that their supplies would run out should the lockdown persist, flooded past guarded isolation barriers earlier this month in search of daily necessities, according to several employees.

It’s not just laborers. In past months, college students in Beijing have rebelled; housing compounds have staged protests; and social media users posting critical videos have tried to outwit an army of Beijing’s Covid Zero strategy: China’s mandarins have insisted that the world’s No. 2 economy can keep going amid lockdowns, through measures like those now in force at the MacBook maker. The reality is far more complicated.

Quanta’s vast campus in the Shanghai suburb of Songjiang serves as both workplace and temporary home for unskilled migrant workers from across the country — as well as higher-paid engineers from Taiwan. Before the Covid outbreak, blue-collar workers would take shifts to make Apple’s MacBook and other laptops in a factory nearby. A standard dorm room houses 12 workers stacked in bunk beds, according to people who have stayed in the compound.

Managers moved swiftly, commissioning buses — sometimes dozens at a time — to ferry positive workers to makeshift hospitals. But as daily infections in the city soared, some were asked to stay with their uninfected roommates until more transport could be arranged, said two workers. Quanta recalled employees that worked at their own residences, putting them into closed loops and subjecting them to daily, repeated testing.
