Rigorous Apple Production Schedule Prompts Holiday Triple Pay Overseas
Apple's forthcoming production schedule for both the 2nd-generation iPad and 5th-generation iPhone is said to be so robust that overseas manufacturers are going to be dropping some serious coin to reach the ambitious finish lines imposed by Apple and the company's scheduled 2011 product refreshes. On Tuesday, DigiTimes reported that workers producing and assembling components for iDevices will be paid a pretty penny in compensation for their efforts - a welcome piece of news given the less-than-adequate pay many laborers are known for earning on overseas assembly lines.
If the estimates provided by DigiTimes are correct, workers at Pegatron will stay on the clock through China's Lunar New Year in return for triple holiday pay. Despite the added financial burden to Pegatron - one of Apple's largest overseas manufacturing partners - the workload is necessary to meet the stringent demands placed on Pegatron by Apple.
Pegatron's plants in Shanghai, China are mainly producing iPhone products, while plants in Suzhou, China, are producing notebooks. However, since Apple has been expanding its orders, Pegatron plans to shift some of its orders to the Suzhou plants for support.

Geez these guys must have like 120 hour work weeks. Don't look at it as triple pay. Apple wouldn't be doing this if they didn't think they wouldnt get its handsome profits

Sham, I say!
Everyone is expecting way too much from the next generation iPhone! I doubt that the fifth generation will have half the gadgets everyone is saying that it will have. I hope it does, but I am not going to raise my hopes. Early production is just another way to hype up the crowd.

This is hard to believe as Chinese factories normally shut down completely for their holidays.

yea thats one thing i dont like about apple and many other campanies is the oversea production, but that is the price for cheap products, apple products would cost ridiculous amount if they were made in AmericaYou don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

I wish Apple hired a domestic manufacture here in the US, so it would help out the economy.
But then the cost for an iDevice would be way more expensive.

Not to single out Apple but a majority of companies work this way, and in honesty if we really did care about it soo much we would simply not buy their products. Truth is we really don't care as long as we get our shiny new product.
