Foxconn, one of Apple’s most important manufacturing partners in Asia is hiring new recruits on a massive scale. Due to this massive recruitment, speculation are rising that an augmented labor force is for the mass production of something new and something big.
The needle of speculation (most suspicion) points towards the 6th generation Apple iPhone (also known as iPhone 5)which might either already gone into production or it will go soon. In order to facilitate the production that can meet large-scale demands of Apple, Foxconn will need an employee boost. And that is what is apparently taking place.
According to the reports published in Chinese news blog M.I.C. Gadget, thousands of prospective employees have flocked to Foxconn’s Chengdu plant in hopes of landing a summer job. At the time of this news report being written, it is not clear how many openings are available.
However, Foxconn is rumored to be hiring a very large number of new workers to help crank out new iPhones and reduce the likelihood of production delays or product shortages.
M.I.C. Gadget revealed that Foxconn requires job applicants to submit a “registration fee” of 150 Chinese yuan(about US $24), just to formally apply for summer employment.
