The NYT piece contends that manufacturing costs in China are about to get more expensive and that this is going to affect the business of companies like Apple, Dell, HP and others who rely on Chinese factory work low cost to maximize the profits.Foxconn and companies like it operate almost on the Walmart model, where the profits come measured in cents per unit, but so many units fly through the fingers of the million or so employees per day that the operation does rake in the cash.Thus, wages in China will rise, pushing up the cost of manufacturing electronic gadgets.
