Changes are coming in working conditions at Apple supplier Foxconn's plants in China, but some of the employees say they are worried about what that could mean for their paychecks.
The Taiwan-based company, which is a major manufacturer for Apple's iPhone and iPad products, said it would cut employees' work hours and raise their hourly wages. In all likelihood, the company will also have to hire "tens of thousands" more employees, the New York Times reported.
The change is coming after the Fair Labor Assn., an industry-funded labor watchdog group, released the findings of its investigation into three of Foxconn's factories in China.
The group found that workers at Foxconn, which employs 1.2 million people, worked more than 60 hours a week, often worked more than seven days in a row and did not receive enough compensation to meet their basic needs. Also, 43% of the workers surveyed said they had experienced or seen an accident while working at the company's factories.
