Re: Apple's Retail Army, Long on Loyalty but Short on Pay
said by Octavean:The Foxconn employee's make on average $92.30/week --> that is with the 25% raise they just got. Works out to about $1.75/hour. (I think typically just over 52 hours a week -- though it could be closer to 60)
Yeah, I guess that isnt ideal,
Still I suspect Foxconn employees typically have it much worse. There is an Army of unsung workers that make these Apple product possible but have it much worse.
Most of them will never see the final product, let alone afford to buy one, obviously.
Mind you, their income is low enough not to warrant income tax. Not that it would help out a hell of a lot. Really not sure how China raises money...but being communistic (and not in a true way), who the hell knows.
