Apple Supplier Foxconn Will Pay Arsonist Workers Overtime

Last Friday's situation at the Mexican Foxconn factory (they supply components and products to Apple) where enraged employees burnt the place down over being forced to work unpaid overtime will be receiving extra pay, according to Foxconn.

Nothing like a bit of exposure on the tech blogs to force the Juarez arm of the Chinese company into doing the right thing by its worker bees. Apparently, the "ringleader" was someone who actually left Foxconn last year, and will be the one punished by the heavy arm of the law - not the hundreds of other workers who joined in on the arson.

Thankfully, Foxconn has also confirmed that nothing was severely damaged by the fire, so they can get back to work polishing those nice aluminium iPhone 4s we've been expecting. [Digitimes]
