    China’s largest iPhone factory apologizes for not paying workers so far

    The factory was hit by the covid and then by the protests of its own employees

    Apple supplier Foxconn has apologized for a “technical error” in its payment systemsa day after its iPhone factory in China was hit by protests. The videos showed hundreds of workers marching at the world’s largest iPhone factory in the city of Zhengzhou, grievances about Covid restrictions and claims for back pay.

    Those who broadcast the protests live stated that the workers were beaten by the police. A Foxconn worker told the British BBC that the situation had now been resolved. Last month, rising covid cases led to a factory closure, causing some workers to leave and go home. The company then recruited new workers with the promise of generous bonuses.

    It seems that due to that “technical error” the payments were not running and the workers were not paid for their hard work. According to the sources used by the BBC, the situation has been restored to the happiness of all those involved.
