Workers Making Apple iPhones Start at $3.15 Per Hour--in China
 

The workers who assemble Apple iPhones make a starting wage of $3.15 per hour in the People's Republic of China, according to The New York Times.

"Apple has said the starting pay for workers at the world's biggest iPhone factory, in Zhengzhou, China, is about $3.15 an hour," The Times reported in a story published two weeks ago.

That $3.15 per hour is less than half the U.S. minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Our equity/equality minded democrat "friends" should cut off trade with China until the workers get $15/hr. just like they demand here. :whistle:  That would show the communists who the real bosses are!

  • Wake me up when the world is sane again!
And? How does that wage fit in with China's cost of living? Just because it seems low to us and our cost of living doesn't mean squat. As a matter of fact that wage and others in China may be the be starting to get so high that manufacturers start looking to other countries like Vietnam, Malaysia and others.
