Foxconn Raises Wages by 66 Percent This Time

Foxconn seems to be doing its level best to get as much positive publicity as it can, and after the recent 30 percent pay hike for its workers, the Taiwanese company has agreed to pay up to 66 percent more to workers, on top of the previous 30 percent hike, though this additional hike will be based on performance. Workers who pass a three-month evaluation will receive the improved pay. This change goes into effect from October 1st for workers in Shenzhen, while other plans will get the details on July 1st, and supervisors will find out if they’re affected on August 1st. It’s a significant increase, but the question is will it be good enough to improve Foxconn’s public image and will it stop the suicide cases at the factory?
