Foxconn’s getting 1 million robots

I just saw an article that Foxconn (China’s largest private employer, and manufacturer of among other things the iPhone) has unveiled a plan to install 1 million robots in its assembly plant.  (They currently employ 1 million employees) What’s wrong with this picture?  What’s wrong is America isn’t implementing a factory with 1 million robots.  Does anyone think Chinese robots will work for less than American robots?  That they’ll work harder? But we’ve lost out.  I don’t see how we’ll catch up at this point.
