Some rumors from last May that Apple was paying a part of the salary of workers in the Foxconn assembly plant have been denied by the giant Taiwan electronics company.

A report in DigiTimes today quotes a Foxconn executive as saying the "rumor is purely speculation and Foxconn has never received any subsidies from Apple."

We've previously reported that Foxconn has started to give substantial pay raises to employees after a spate of publicity about suicides at the Foxconn plant. the company also says it is going to move some of the Apple product production to new facilities in other parts of China.
