Seriously? With a population of 1.4 BILLION people a shortage of less than 12 million workers is just a ROUNDING error. What China has is a population that no longer wants to engage in MENIAL LABOR which is a SYMPTOM of having a SUCCESSFUL economy and an IMPROVED standard of living. We have the IDENTICAL problem here in America and those jobs are filled by MIGRANT WORKERS from other nations. I have little doubt that China will do something similar.
