Over 20,000 employees leave iPhone maker Foxconn’s Chinese plant, iPhone production to be impacted

iPhone’s Foxconn plant in China witnessed a mass exit of close to 20,000 employees after a series of protests. As per reports, over 20,000 employees including the new hires have left the manufacturer a day after violent protests broke out at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant in China. Workers had expressed unhappiness over the working conditions, which later escalated into protests in the past couple of days.Foxconn, in an attempt to quell protests, had offered to pay newly hired workers 10,000 yuan ($1400) to quit the facility. In a message to employees, which was accessed by CNN, the company urged workers to return to their dormitories. The company also promised to pay 8000 yuan if they agreed to quit Foxconn and another 2000 yuan once they board the bus to leave the facility.

Now a Reuters report has claimed that the employees have left the facility. Most of the employees leaving the manufacturer were new hires and had not started working on the production line. The mass exodus of employees can largely impact iPhone production. Previously, the lockdown due to a surge in COVID cases had impacted iPhone production.

Foxconn apologised for the pay related issues that had given rise to the protests. “Our team has been looking into the matter and discovered a technical error occurred during the onboarding process,” Foxconn said in an official statement.
