Foxconn maintains that working conditions at the factory are good and has offered the workers pay increases. Apple cut iPad profit less than 1% recently and gave that money to workers at the plant in a raise.
Foxconn has announced that it is offering to improve the pay of workers by up to 66% if they can pass a 3-month evaluation. Exactly what the evaluation will look for is unknown. Even at a 66% increase, workers still make under $300 USD monthly at the plant.
