CNN: Foxconn Offers to Pay Workers to Leave World’s Largest iPhone Factory After Violent Protests

‘These workers, they’ve been angry about wages

EXCERPT:

WANG: “We’ve also obtained another video that shows a group of workers that are working together to push over a police car. They’re cheering and chanting as they push the car over. Now, Foxconn is desperately trying to calm things down. They are now offering to pay those newly recruited workers the equivalent of $1,400 to quit and leave the factory. We’ve seen videos of workers lining up to leave, but that puts even more pressure on Apple. They need those workers ahead of the holiday season. They’ve already announced that these Covid lockdowns in China are impacting shipments and making them more delayed because this is where analysts estimate that more than half of the world’s iPhones are produced, Poppy.”
