China’s got a big – and growing – labor problem.

Recent workplace disputes in China have highlighted a growing and unexpectedly influential labor movement in the Asian country, leading some to believe Chinese society is making a fundamental long-term transition away from being the world's vast pool of cheap labor .

Companies who have relied on China for cheap labor have also begun to notice, and a small but growing percentage are now looking at moving operations elsewhere to cheaper labor markets such as Vietnam or India.
