Foxconn Raises Employee Wages By 16-25%

Foxconn announced that is has raised wages for its Chinese workers by 16-25%, the third increase since 2010, reports Reuters.

In a statement on Friday, Taiwan-based Foxconn said the pay of a junior level worker in Shenzhen, southern China, had risen to 1,800 yuan per month and could be further raised above 2,200 yuan if the worker passed a technical examination.

"As a top manufacturing company in China, the basic salary of junior workers in all of Foxconn's China factories is already far higher than the minimum wage set by all local governments," the statement said.


"We will provide more training opportunities and learning time, and will continuously enhance technology, efficiency and salary, so as to set a good example for the Chinese manufacturing industry."

The wage hikes come as Apple has faced intense criticism over working conditions at the factories used to build its devices. The company has since asked the Fair Labor Association to audit Foxconn factories. Their initial impression was that the facilities at Foxconn were way, way above average.

Pay three years ago was 900 yuan a month.
