Asian Labor News asked this question regarding China, garments and nanotechnology:
I can provide a little more insight based on information I received from a journalist working in China who has spoken to officials at U-Right International, the nanotech company cited in the report. Company officials said the biggest problem the firm has is worker loyalty, so they have to make sure that trained technicians don't leave and tell "nanotech secrets" to other companies. To improve "worker loyalty," they've built a "campuslike" community.
My colleague says there are quite a few garment makers (nano or not), in China that are doing the same thing.
My colleague has to continue to work in China, so I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
