Foxconn Chaos; Apologies Come In After Huge Protests At Chinese iPhone Plant

Foxconn, an Apple supplier, has apologized for a technical error in its payment systems. The apology comes a day after angry protests rocked the supplier’s factory in China.

Hundreds of workers were seen marching at the world’s biggest iPhone factory in Zhengzhou city. The workers had complaints over Covid restrictions and overdue pay claims.

The live streamers revealed that some of the protestors were beaten by the police although the situation has since been resolved.

The factory experienced a lockdown last month after realizing a spike in cases of Covid-19, prompting some workers to go home.

The company then recruited new workers with the promise of generous bonuses. However, one worker said these contracts were changed so they couldn’t get the promised subsidy.

Earlier today in a statement, Foxconn said a technical error occurred during the on-boarding process. They also added that the new recruits’ pay is the same as they agreed before.

The firm also said it kept in contact with the affected employees constantly about the pay bonuses. It further revealed that it is doing its absolute best to actively solve the concerns and demands of the employees.

The Zhengzhou plant employs more than 200,000 people to make Apple Inc devices including the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
