How much did you pay for that iPad?

via Foxconn increases pay — Shanghai Daily | 上海日报 — English Window to China New.

The basic salary at the mainland plants of Foxconn Technology Group — which makes iPhones and other popular gadgets — is about 900 yuan (US$130) per month.

But fortunately the company has agreed to raise wages after several workers committed suicide.  The 20% raise will add $25/month to the workers’ check.  So now, if they save all their money, it will take workers only 3 months to save up enough for an iPad, instead of the almost four months it does now.
