Tens of thousands of seasonal workers in the iPhone supply chain are reportedly being let go ahead of schedule amidst Apple's production cuts due to a slowdown in sales.

Since the start of the holiday quarter beginning in October, around 50,000 temporary employees have been cut at the Chinese factory for Foxconn, Apple's largest iPhone manufacturer, the Nikkei Asian Review reports.

A massive amount of workers are employed temporarily for the holiday season to help scale up production, but sources told Nikkei it's unusual in that these jobs cuts were made significantly earlier than in previous years.

Apple reportedly told suppliers earlier this year to cut back iPhone production by an estimated 10%.
