Foxconn to hire more workers in China

Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer and maker of the Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad, says it plans to hire up to 400,000 workers in the next 12 months.

The move follows a spate of suicides at its factories in China.

Officials said it would enable the company to cut employees' overtime while maintaining production.
