I remember when (dating myself here--if no one else will, I must) surface mount tech came in to e-. There were something like two million mostly middle-aged women assembly workers tossed on the street. No warning, nuthin'.

Farking Fox can turn anything into a lie. The truth is that Apple's request (requirement?), Foxconn is considering opening a factory in the US and transfer iPhone manufacturing to it.

Sure, but that's a trick as well. Foxconn opens a "factory" in the US, but actually 90% of the actual building of the component is done already at the same Chinese factories and it is shipped to some small US facility where a few American workers assemble said component into the plastic case. BFD.

As I understand it, iPhones are only assembled in China. The components are made in a number of locations, including the US. No electronic device has all components manufactured and assembled in a single location. Those days have been gone for nearly a century.

"And here are the Suicide Nets on our buildings. Having employee's families sign contracts stating they will NOT sue us when our employees commit suicide simply wasn't working. We prevented payouts, but we still lost precious hours of productivity in messy cleanup... so we installed nets!"

"Wait... what? Yoooooon-yuns? What's that? Oh, you silly Americans and your silly made-up words!"

dragonchild: At my last job a bunch of right-wing teabaggers had no shortage of personal finance advice to offer despite everyone else have more financially secure households.

That reminds me of those hippies, squatters, and starbucks clerks I read about trying to give advice to wall street on how to run an international banking system.

We call Taiwan "China" now, subby? Why do you hate freedom?

But seriously ... how much of this business is Taiwan, and how much is PRC? Article is short on details.

The obvious answer is to hire more workers for $0.25 per day. Duh. You can hire ~150 people to one US worker and still come out ahead, and statistical probability says one of them will figure it out.

You know what Foxconn? We'll keep the design, support infrastructure jobs for those iThingies here and you can keep the mindless insert tab A into slot B jobs and environmental disaster for yourself.
