The Incomes In China Are Increasing

Factories are increasing payments to workers. Governments are raising minimum wages.

The incomes of factory workers are still low compared to the workers in United States and Europe. The hourly earning in southern China is only about 80 cents per hour.

The workers from rural provinces usually earn about US$200 a month, working six or seven days a week.

Big manufacturers intend to raise wages because they are desperate to attract new workers. Many coastal cities have labor shortages.

China won't lose its manufacturing because it have a huge domestic market. It will move them to higher-end goods.
