The photovoltaic Industry is in a downturn. Many few enterprises have declared bankruptcy and have the operation cost cut by falling yields or cutting employees against a “severe winter” in this industry. Today our reporter informed that some employees of Wuxi Suntech-Power Co., Ltd., a big factory in China which is engaged in solar energy, protested against the compensation given by enterprises to employees who got fired by staging a strike, containing the road, etc. At present, Suntech-Power has fired over 4, 000 employees, accounting for over 30% of the staff. It is said over 1500 employees are expected to get fired this time.
We will keep an eye on this matter and hope enterprises could show more concern for employees when they are beating their brains out how to weather a crisis and finally beat the odds together with employees.
