    say what ?

    Seems labor there has priced itself into obsolescence. Who woulda thunk it ?
    Better not tell Trap, he may have a conniption fit.

    LOL, China has the same problems as the US. It is called greed by the top 1 percenters, and the attempts at placing the lower classes in servitude to the government which is run by the corporations. Better luck next time dog.

    Just think. The American corporations over there are paying workers a whole 4000 dollars a year, or less. Think you can live on that Deputy Dawg?

    The survey found that in 2012, the households in the top 5 percent income bracket earned 23 percent of China’s total household income. The households in the lowest 5 percent accounted for just 0.1 percent of total income.

    Average annual income for a family in 2012 was 13,000 renminbi, or about $2,100. When broken down by geography, the survey results showed that the average amount in Shanghai, a huge coastal city, was just over 29,000 renminbi, or $4,700, while the average in Gansu Province, far from the coast in northwest China, was 11,400 renminbi, or just under $2,000. Average family income in urban areas was about $2,600, while it was $1,600 in rural areas.
