The latest iPhone or a well-paid job, which will you choose? Employees from a company in Henan Province have been asked to quit if they are found spending money on the newly released iPhone 7 and iPhone 7Plus. The company encouraged its staff to care more about their families than fancy electronic devices. By banning workers from buying Apple products, the employer also attempted to arouse patriotic sentiments among employees. However, the policy has breached labor laws, and those dismissed for buying iPhones have the right to demand compensation from the company, according to lawyers. The company is moral and patriotic to discourage employees from spending a large amount of money on fast-updated smartphones simply to satisfy their vanity. Instead of indiscriminately threatening to fire workers, the company should put forward wiser solutions to encourage its staff to care more about their families and the future of China.
