Cheapest place in Asia to hire workers? Burma

China Briefing has a useful table on wage costs across Asia.

According to China Briefing: “China’s workers are now amongst some of the best paid in Asia”, and: “…it signals that an exodus of export driven manufacturing may occur, principally to competing, lower-cost Asian nations for China’s residual export driven manufacturing.” More, here.

Lots of China podcasts on wages and factories are here. Some useful China and global apparel stats are here.
