"As a top manufacturing company in China, the basic salary of junior workers in all of Foxconn's China factories is already far higher than the minimum wage set by all local governments.
"We will provide more training opportunities and learning time, and will continuously enhance technology, efficiency and salary, so as to set a good example for the Chinese manufacturing industry."
With the raise, the pay of a junior level employee in Shenzhen has risen to 1,800 yuan (or about $286) monthly. If the employee passed a technical examination, his pay could rise still further, above 2,200 yuan (about $349).
The company added that three years ago, that same employee would only have received 900 yuan monthly (or about $143).
Earlier this week, the Washington-based non-profit Fair Labor Association (FLA) began inspections of the facilities of Foxconn and two other Apple manufacturers. Apple is the first tech firm to join the FLA.
