Foxconn hires a million robots

Over the next three years, Foxconn will replace a portion of their workers by robots in a total of 1 million, said founder and CEO Terry Gou Foxconn (Terry Gou). Taiwanese manufacturer is the largest supplier of components for the production of Apple, Sony and Nokia. Currently, the company employs 10 000 robots. The following year, their number will increase to 300,000.

Interestingly, the use of robotic workforce will create space for more highly paid engineers who will manage these same robots. Rather, the decision was made in connection with the suicide bombings of discontent and factories Foxconn. Therefore, replacement of humans by robots – a pretty good idea. Machines will be engaged in painting, welding and assembly sites.

On the other hand, the state has 1.2 million Foxconn employees and all of them sooner or later will be unemployed.
