The people in those pics don't look as happy as they should be about assembling my hardware!

Yes, that would be 2000 RMB per month which is good pay for assembly work but bad for the rest of us. In Guangdong province which is were Dongguan is located minimum wage is about 1200 RMB per month. Factory workers are uneducated poor people that typically migrate to the manufacturing towns for work.

With the little bit of money they save most of it and send it back to families in poor rural areas where a few bucks goes a really long way. It is also common for factory workers to work a year and save, go back home for a year and live off the money then go back to work.

For a factory like this assembly labor will account for 5% - 7% of their cost. And despite the low labor cost it still makes a lot more sense to buy expensive machinery, the simple SMT machines shown are $50,000, the automatic soldering machine is about $100,000 and I have no idea what that 6 headed spool feed assembly machine cost, probably in the quarter million dollar range.

Most electronic assembly work is done by younger girls too because they have smaller hands. So our GPU's are mostly assembled by 18 year old girls asian girls
