Foxconn wants Americans to train in Chinese factories

Written by Nick Farrell



We need more third world labour


Foxconn Technology Group wants to invite dozens of American engineers to his factories in China to learn about manufacturing.

Terry Gou said that the US had no chance of of getting production lines back to the US because Americans have outsourced those jobs for too long. But he added that Americans can learn how factories are operated so they can return home to set up facilities with automated equipment to resolve the lack of skilled labourers.

Foxconn employs 1.2 million people in China to assemble products for Apple. It has introduced more robots in China over the past two years as it faces soaring wages there. Foxconn likes the idea of robots because these do not have a tendency to want to kill themselves and do not kick up a stink when they are pulled from their school's because the company has a big project on.
