Recently, it has been reported that the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou Economic Development Zone, Henan has set off a wave of employee turnover.
According to the proprietress of the canteen in the factory, there are indeed many fewer workers in the factory, and business is bleak. The security guard said that many people could not stand the low wages and left. Due to the epidemic, the orders and raw materials were not in place, and they could not work overtime. The wages were too low, and the dispatch workers were basically finished. Some employees said, “I can’t stand receiving two or three thousand yuan a month.”
Affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, iPhone sales of Foxconn’s main customer Apple fell 77% year-on-year and 56% month-on-month, according to survey data from analysts. The decline in Apple’s iPhone sales has also had a severe impact on its supply chain, including Foxconn.
It was previously reported that Apple cut a large number of orders due to the epidemic, causing Foxconn to let some employees take a four-month vacation from this month until September 1. In this regard, Foxconn Technology Group said, “At present, all factories in the mainland of the group are operating normally, and there is no so-called large-scale layoffs and vacations.”
