A Pay Rise Comes Too Late
为时已晚

Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics contract manufacturer, is revamping the pay structure at its main production base in southern China in a move that could end up the cost structure of global electronics production.
富士康,这一全球最大的电子产品合同制造商正彻底调查其位于中国南方主要生产基地的员工薪资结构,而此举可能推高全球电子产品生产的成本构成。

Following a 30 percent wage increase from July 1, the group said workers who reach certain performance standards would now also get an additional 66 percent pay rise from October 1.
7 月1 日富士康已经给工人加薪30%,之后又表示会从10 月1 日起给达到一定业绩标准的工人额外加薪66%。

“The monthly wage for all first-line employees and their line leaders and supervisors in Shenzhen will be elevated to Rmb2,000 as early as October 1 2010, ” if the workers successfully passed a three-month evaluation period, the company said.
富士康表示,“最早从10 月1 日起,深圳工厂中所有‘一线’员工及线长、组长的月薪将增加到2000 元,只要员工能成功通过为期3 个月的考核期。”

The wage increase comes as a spate of suicide among workers in Foxconn’s largest plant and a strike at a Honda factory in China have triggered calls for better conditions for the tens of millions of migrant workers who have been powering China’s export-manufacturing machine.
此次加薪的直接原因是富士康最大厂区一连串自杀事件以及在本田中国工厂的罢工事件。这一系列劳工事件引发了对改善数以百万计中国农民工劳动条件的呼声。农民工一直是中国出口制造业的真正动力。

Foxconn’s decision is the clearest sign yet of major changes in the labor conditions in export manufacturing in China.
富士康的加薪决定预示着中国出口制造业的用工状况正发生重大转变。

Foxconn, which makes electronic gadgets such as iPhones and PlayStation video game consoles, is China’s largest employer with a headcount of 800,000, and has been the country’s largest exporter every year since 2003.
富士康,这家生产iPhone 和PlayStation 视频游戏机等电子产品的企业,拥有全中国最多的雇员,员工80 万名。自2003 年以来,每年都是中国最大的出口企业。

Foxconn executives said they could not predict how the additional cost would be shared but expected customers to help shoulder the burden.
富士康管理层说他们无法预测谁来承担加薪造成的额外成本,但预计部分会被转嫁给消费者。

The latest increase would more than double the basic pay of assembly line workers in Shenzhen and bring it to a level they currently only reach by working 12-hour shifts six days a week.
最新的加薪举措使富士康深圳工厂流水线工人的基本工资提高一倍多。目前工人想要挣到这么多钱,必需一周工作6 天、每天工作12 个小时。

The increase exceeds the demands of some labor activists who had rejected Foxconn’s earlier 30 per cent pay rise as too little too late. Activists said the group needed to increase pay by at least 50 per cent to give workers a decent income without massive overtime.
本次加薪甚至也超出了一些劳工维权人士的预期。他们曾表示富士康此前30%的加薪“太少”也“太晚”。这些维权人士认为,富士康至少需要加薪50%,才能让工人得到不错的报酬,而又不需要大量加班。
