Nokia raises German hackles – what did they expect

After Benq broke the hearts of German workers, Nokia has now done the same.

The town of Bochum in Germany, depends on Nokia and provided significant funding.

It is obvious that Germany’s wages and social costs will make it an expensive place to manufacture, especially in comparison with Romania.

But if BMW can still afford to manufacturer cars in Germany, why can’t Nokia do the same for mobiles?

Nokia now faces the wrath of the German population that feels betrayed and is already publicly demonstrating their anger on the streets, on YouTube and, worryingly for Nokia, in the shops.
