Yesterday I just read an article called Skilled Work without the Worker", and today I read a long post about how Foxconn Chengdu got enough labors with the support of local government. Somewhat ironic.

In the first one, it said:
(From NYTimes, 
DRACHTEN, the Netherlands — At the Philips Electronics factory on the coast of China, hundreds of workers use their hands and specialized tools to assemble electric shavers. That is the old way.
At a sister factory here in the Dutch countryside, 128 robot arms do the same work with yoga-like flexibility. Video cameras guide them through feats well beyond the capability of the most dexterous human.
....
Many industry executives and technology experts say Philips’s approach is gaining ground on Apple’s. Even as Foxconn, Apple’s iPhone manufacturer, continues to build new plants and hire thousands of additional workers to make smartphones, it plans to install more than a million robots within a few years to supplement its work force in China.
Foxconn has not disclosed how many workers will be displaced or when. But its chairman, Terry Gou, has publicly endorsed a growing use of robots. Speaking of his more than one million employees worldwide, he said in January, according to the official Xinhua news agency: “As human beings are also animals, to manage one million animals gives me a headache.”

I was impressed by the technology. 

Today, I read a post about Foxconn, which said:
初步估算,目前富士康有8万多工人(富士康每天都在新增工人,8万是截至2012年5月的估算数字),这部分工人分为白班和夜班两班倒—对按照30万工人来规划的工厂来说,这一数目还远远不够。富士康迫切需要劳务公司和政府来帮助其解决工人问题。而截至2012年4月15日,在成都开展业务的世界500强公司已达到215家,制造业、生物、化工占大多数。产业迁移彻底盘活了成都的劳务市场,近三年来,这个市场上增加了上千家劳务公司,劳务行业本身的新增岗位就达上万个。  
 
富士康是四川省的“一号工程”,四川省政府承诺以行政方式来满足它的劳动力需求。政府指派每个市都要完成招工任务,每个县都分到了几千工人的招工名额。因此,像“抓壮丁”一样,乡镇干部协助招工,并且亲自带队将大批工人送到富士康上班。据一家劳务公司负责人江总透露,由政府主导成立的富士康招募办,按照省、市、县、乡镇四级,层层分配任务下去,凡是劳务公司带一个工人来富士康,就由政府支付1200元的报酬。   
.....
这些劳务公司也在沿海一带挖人,比如,深圳每月会输送一万人至成都。四川的职业学校学生出来实习,主要也都安排到富士康。
(In brief, Foxconn has 80 thousand workers now and will have about 300 thousand. )

It's like jumping from one era to another.
