Like Huawei Lost, the hearts of the Chinese Public
On the first anniversary Your arrest in Canada Meng WanzhouLi Hongyuan, was finally released from prison, without charges, and receive 15,000 $in the government compensation last Week. He told his story online last week, and that was when the hits began to Huawei’s reputation.

Mrs Meng has been under house arrest in a six-room house, on possible extradition to the United States on charges that they conspired to defraud banks about Huawei’s relationship with an Iranian company.
The anger is directed against a woman Meng a bad moment reflected for both Huawei and China-the middle class-professionals. In the past year, Huawei has had the defense of claims by the government of the United States, that it is mysterious and unreliable, and that it spies for Beijing, and the accusation, the company has always denied.
In China, however, Huawei was considered the crown jewel of the country’s tech industry, and has enjoyed it tremendously well. Many Chinese abandoned the pride, your iPhone for Huawei mobile phones. But the counter-reaction to the jailing of a long-term employee after a fight, has made it clear that the people in China are pissed at the company.
all The rage on social media was also groundbreaking for a new “Many middle-class Chinese used to believe that if they went to good schools, worked hard and paid little attention to the current Affairs, you would be able to, their Chinese dreams,” a blogger wrote on Weibo. “Well, their dreams in tatters.”
Huawei declined to comment on the reaction of the public.
Mr. Li, a Huawei employee for 12 years, negotiated a $48,000 severance payment in March 2018, according to interviews he gave to Chinese media. But he did not on an end-of-the-year bonus that he had said promised him. He sued Huawei in November of last year.

We respect the decisions of the authorities,” st said. “If Li Hongyuan thinks that he has a damage or that his rights have been violated, we support his right to seek satisfaction by legal means, up to and including a lawsuit against Huawei.”
Online commentators called the statement “arrogant” and “cold blooded.” “The elephant stepped on you, but you said step for step on you,” a popular home for Tencent’s article. “What is the answer of justice!”
Jiang Jingjing, a blogger, criticized Huawei for trampling on his rights of the workers with his harsh performance evaluation system and legal firepower. “As soon as a company becomes cold, dehumanized grinding machine, what is that supposed to be?” he wrote.

Huawei cultivated an aggressive “New employee for a mattress, if you have joined, because everyone was expected to work until late in the evening, and often sleep in the office. Over a decade ago, a series of employee deaths hard control of the company moved. An investigative report by a news magazine counted six unnatural deaths in two years, including four suicides.
Since then, especially after the United States began a global campaign to stop to try, its allies, Huawei’s next-generation wireless technology, known as 5G, Huawei has become a symbol of China’s technology skills and American attempts to the China to the bottom.

Chinese companies think the consumer will react only on promotional gifts and discounts, he wrote, “but a very high percentage of the young generation care about values, too.”

The blogger wrote, in detail, how it was contributed to life in a 355-square-meter cell with 55 people in the tropical weather, what you ate and did that every day.
