Qualifications of China building construction workers in serious question.

13 people have been charged by China authorities as being responsible for the recent Shanghai building fire which resulted in many dead / injured.

Some of the 13 were non-licensed / unqualified welders along with others.

A 15 story building constructed in just a few days? Thanks but no thanks.

We need to know the details, Mr. canada_man!

Do you know, China working class salaries could just double between 2010 and 2017, that's just in Rmb terms!
We do not know what the US$/Rmb exchange rate will be like in 2017.
Let's say it's still 6.8 rate......

That will mean, salaries in the construction industry could literally be around US$600 a month!!!!!

Pre Fab methods allows efficient off site work, greater precision.....
Generally use of better quality materials.....

How it work out in the cost effectiveness basis, is yet to be revealed!

cheerios!

Pretty likely it could be Rmb 5.5 to US$ 1 in 2017

............at worst case scenerio!

That could mean, salary of the middle income worker could be US$730 a month!
All this will change the landscape of China.....

With rethinking on barge transport system, construction of buildings, range of products in a factory!
More expensive hands, means China would need to increase "speed of production"!

I would say the Hunan case is a bit EXTREME, a few days to put up a 15 storey building!!!!

cheerios!
