Apple So, Apple is serious about this thing. Tim Cook has said in an interview the company plans to manufacture one line of Macs in the US, starting next year. Coincidentally (or not?), Foxconn has just announced it plans to expand its production facilities... Into the United States. There's no indication as of yet that the two are linked, but the coincidence is at least interesting.

I don't think skills are the key factor to this. It does not need some hard-to-learn skills to manufacture products like Iphone, Ipad, etc. In fact, as far as I know, the training cycle for these Chinese workers is less than 4 weeks, and many of them just keep jumping from one job to another. Rarely someone treat this kind of job as a long term career. The key factor has always been the cost.
