I think Apple know's they have a problem with the 5, when your manufacturer Foxconn goes on strike over quality control issues it can't be good.

Foxconn makes products for many companies other than Apple, and at no point has it been stated that it was people working on building the iPhone 5 that had gone on strike (or even caused the big brawl that happened a few weeks ago).

I have no idea how you turn that claim by a non-disinterested party to "I think Apple know's they have a problem with the 5".

That is, they post reviews you don't agree with so they're "completely biased" or lying?

Others have reported the Foxconn strike as well, so there's nothing wrong with the BGR source.

UPDATE: Looks like there may not have been an actual strike after all.

If actually there was a strike for the reasons mentioned, this only means that Foxconn can't produce enough iPhone 5s. I don't see how Apple could be in trouble because of this.

Really would they ever admit to work stoppage or a strike? Swept under the rug...
