Crowds of people turned up at three Foxconn plants after the Chinese New Year looking for work, according to a report.
Digitimes says that the company's plants in Shenzhen, Zhengzhou and Wuhan all attracted large crowds of people looking for jobs after the week-long holiday.
But Digitimes says that the wages on offer to Foxconn recruits, as well as accommodation, have attracted large numbers to seek work with the company. Indeed, other companies are suffering from labour shortages due to Foxconn's appeal to potential employees, Digitimes claims.
Meanwhile, Foxconn is reportedly set to build five new plants in Brazil, government officials in the country said earlier this week.
