Tim Cook visits a Foxconn factory where the Apple iPhone 6 is built
posted by Alan F. / Oct 23, 2014, 12:41 AM
Amid reports that the Chinese government is responsible for attacks on Apple's iCloud, Cook is planning on meeting with China's Vice Premier Ma Kai to discuss the situation. The Chinese government denies involvement, as you might expect it would. Cook might also be visiting the factory to see what can be done in order to get supplies of the iPhone 6 increased, in order to match the strong demand for the new iPhone model.
Last year, China was among the countries that received the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c during the initial launch. This year, Chinese iPhone buyers had to wait for the second wave of countries to launch the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus. The official release date in China was October 17th.
While in China, Cook can visit a China Unicom branch and have his pants pockets widened in order to better accommodate an Apple iPhone 6 Plus.

He actually laughs after he asked her how much she earn a month at that factory - he laughs that she works a month for a production costs of a single iPhone. I am just wondering that Tim had the balls to go for a walk through that factory.

I really don't see how he is at fault for them being underpaid. Even if Apple dished out more money for them...will it get to them? I mean the workers get ..what Foxconn pays them.Them getting underpaid is because of their system.

Funny that everyone says the working conditions are 'so bad' at Foxconn, yet when Foxconn is hiring, thousands upon thousands of people go there for a chance to work there!!?? Apple is providing jobs in a country that would otherwise have none! See how much fun it is in the US working for GM putting the same rivet in a part for 35 years.. It a job, it feeds your family!

Its because its one of the highest paying jobs around. Research the suicide rate of Foxconn employess, or the apartments they're forced to live in with bars on the windows so they dont jump, or the net under the windows to catch them if they do find a way to jump. Nothing like working a 16 hour day, and going "home" to an apartment with 5 or 6 other employees, and not seeing your family. Oh...and by saying one of the highest paying jobs, for those 16 hours you worked, you barely scratch $1 U.S.D. for that day.
