A Chinese factory in Dongguan, Southern China has replaced 90% of its 690 workers with robots resulting in a 150% increase in production and a fall in defects from one in four to one in twenty products. The initiative is part of the Made in China 2025 program that aims to rapidly increase production in China, despite rising wages and environmental concerns. Magazine Monetary Watch notes that automation has led to better wages and conditions in some European countries but not in much of the developing world
