Chinese cities brace for wave of Foxconn workers from COVID-hit ZhengzhouZhengzhou, capital of Henan province, reported 167 locally transmitted COVID-19 cases in the seven days to Oct. 29, up from 97 infections in the prior seven-day period. Taiwan-based Foxconn, which has about 300,000 workers in Zhengzhou, has not disclosed the number of infected workers.
around the Foxconn plant in Zhengzhou, where around 200,000 people are employed, there had been unrest a few weeks ago. Thousands of employees had escaped out of fear of infection or the strict measures. Foxconn then promised employees higher wages if they were to decide to return despite the restrictions. But the work continued to operate in a so -called "closed cycle". Employees were not allowed to leave the factory premises.
Foxconn announced on Wednesday that there were questions of new employees about their salaries. These would be paid out as intended in the contracts. Rumors that employees would have to share their accommodations with infected colleagues are wrong.
In the South Chinese metropolis of Guangzhou, protests against the Corona measures of the government had also occurred last week. Annoyed migrant workers tore down numerous barricades.
