The protesting workers at the Foxconn plant in the city of Zhengzhou are rumored to number somewhere around three to four thousand, and are refusing to work due to a lack of quality control training and demands to work over a holiday.

Multiple production lines of the iPhone 5 are reportedly in a “state of paralysis.”

The bad news for Apple and its loyal customer following comes just two weeks after Foxconn was forced to shut down a different Chinese plant after employees began rioting.
