It isn’t entirely clear how the company plans to change the employees, but the fine could be deducted from their paychecks.
There’s no doubt that tensions are high between the U.S. and China. Between trade wars and the U.S. pushing for Huawei and other Chinese brands to be banned by government agencies, it’s pretty evident that both sides aren’t happy with the other.
The fighting is also likely hurting Huawei’s business. To support its business partner, Menpad, a Shenzhen-based company that supplies parts for Huawei and other Chinese manufacturers has announced that it will start punishing employees that buy iPhones.
According to a statement given to the South China Morning Post, Menpad will impose a penalty equal to the market cost of the purchased iPhone. It isn’t entirely clear how the company plans to change the employees, but the fine could be deducted from their paychecks.
If this wasn’t enough of a reason for Menpad’s employees to avoid Apple at all costs, the company is also offering to give those who buy a Huawei or ZTE phone 15 percent of the purchase price back.
