Apple Supplier Foxconn Apologizes for Hiring Blunder

Apple's major supplier Foxconn said on Thursday that a "technical error" occurred when hiring new recruits at a COVID-hit iPhone factory in China, and the company apologized to workers after the company was rocked by new labor unrest.

Hundreds of workers demonstrated outside the largest iPhone manufacturing facility in the world in Zhengzhou, China on Wednesday. The demonstration was sparked by claims of unpaid wages and annoyance with the harsh COVID-19 restrictions. Men smashed surveillance cameras and engaged in physical altercations with security personnel.

MACROECONOMIC DATA ANALYSIS

The central bank of South Korea slowed the pace of rate hikes on Thursday, drastically reducing its 2023 growth forecast and changing the language used to describe its rate outlook, all of which may indicate that the tightening cycle is nearing its conclusion. In an effort to control inflation without impeding economic expansion, the Bank of Korea (BOK) increased its benchmark policy rate by 25 basis points to 3.25% on Thursday, the highest level since 2012. This follows an October increase of 0.5 percentage points.

Tiff Macklem, governor of the Bank of Canada, testified before the House of Commons on Wednesday that Canada's inflation is still too high and that higher interest rates will be required to cool the overheating economy. According to Macklem, “inflation has decreased recently, but we have yet to see a general decline in price pressures.” He also said that this tightening stage “will come to an end.”

GOLD
