11. Workers rest inside their hostel after lunch inside a shoe factory in Ganzhou, Jiangxi province June 21, 2010. With the yuan now climbing again, factories in China's coastal export hubs are fretting that a stronger currency will compound a sharp rise in wage and production costs. But an abundant supply of cheaper workers means that plants sprinkled in the interior are somewhat insulated from the surging wage demands that have sparked a series of headline-grabbing strikes in the powerhouse province of Guangdong. Take Ganzhou, a newly emerging industrial region in Jiangxi province, just to the north of Guangdong. Picture taken June 21, 2010. REUTERS/Bobby Yip

12. A worker works while surrounded by unmanned sewing machines at the production line of a bag factory in Yiwu, Zhejiang province, February 15, 2011. China's booming coastal provinces are facing a labour shortage after the Lunar New Year holidays as the seemingly endless flow of migrant workers dries up. More and more workers in the traditional manufacturing belts in the Pearl River and Yangtze River deltas are staying back in their home villages in the countryside due to rapid urbanisation and economic development in China's interior. The machines are unmanned due to labour shortage, according the factory management. REUTERS/Aly Song

13. Employees make fuses at a dynamite production line of a chemical plant in Huaibei, Anhui province, July 1, 2010. The pace of Chinese manufacturing growth slowed in June as government steps to cool the red-hot property market and restrain bank lending combined with uncertainty over export prospects to dampen sentiment.

14. An employee looks up while working along a production line in Suzhou Etron Electronics Co. Ltd's factory in Suzhou, Jiangsu province in this June 8, 2010 file photo. China may be the workshop of the world, but young rural migrant workers are less accepting than their parents were of life in the factories -- low pay, gruelling hours, and sometimes martial workplace rules. A spate of worker suicides at the tightly guarded factories that make gadgets for Apple and other electronics companies has also highlighted their plight, becoming a cause celebre for migrant workers who followed the stories online -- as well as an embarrassment to the foreign companies that depend on the plants.
