    Default Apple’s China labour costs rise noted by Dell, HP

    http://mybroadband.co.za/news/busine...osts-rise.html

    Hewlett-Packard and Dell Inc are keeping a close eye on a big jump in wages for workers that assemble Apple Inc’s iPhone in China, and could be forced to nudge up prices for their own products if labor costs keep rising...

    China should also want to keep a curb on these costs; I.e. not to push past their own raison d'ętre.

    A time will come wherein China is not the cheapest labour market, then what will this tech companies do?

    More important is what will China do -- 1.5 billion people need work and lots of it.

    Simple re what will tech coys do: other manufacturer capable markets are for example: India and Brazil; it would be nice if Africa could also fulfill this, but it very inconceivable with the unions and perceived laziness.
    ... And none of this considers how much could be automated (robotics)
