Foxconn Offers Cash and Rides to Lure Back Runaway Workers
Apple Inc. supplier Foxconn Technology Group is trying all means including higher pay to lure runaway workers back to its Zhengzhou factory as pandemic lockdowns and a worker shortage disrupt production.
Starting Nov. 1, Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory offered an allowance of 400 yuan ($55) a day to any workers showing up for work this month, up from the regular attendance allowance of 100 yuan. Workers who continue to work for 25 days can get an additional bonus of 5,000 yuan. The factory is also hiring hourly paid workers, offering 30 yuan an hour until Feb. 15.
