Foxconn has been under increasing scrutiny as workers at its Chinese manufacturing plant for iPhones are committing suicide. So far this year ten workers have killed themselves at the factory.

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
