iPhone maker offers payments to get workers

Date:

Apple supplier Foxconn is ramping up efforts to recruit workers after unrest at the world’s biggest iPhone factory in China.

Employees who successfully refer a friend or family member to work at its plant in Zhengzhou, China, will receive a 1,000 yuan award ($141), BBC reported.

It comes after footage circulated widely online last week showed angry protests at the factory.

Apple has warned that shipments of its new iPhone 14 would be delayed due to Covid restrictions, the report said.

Foxconn employees who refer a new recruit will be paid 500 yuan if the person stays working for the company for 15 days. They will get another 500 yuan if the recruit remains in the role for a month, a post seen by the BBC on the popular messaging app WeChat said.

Last month, Foxconn apologised for a “technical error” in its payment system after protests at the factory in the city of Zhengzhou over Covid restrictions and claims of overdue pay.

The announcement came after videos posted on social media showed hundreds of workers clashing with security staff.

Factory activity in the world’s second largest economy shrank more than expected in November. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) fell to 48, down from 49.2 in October, according to the latest official figures published on Wednesday.
