Why China for the iPhone, instead of the US?

Excellent read, but I find it also sad.

This quote captures why Apple at this time does not build the iPhone in the US:
Apple executives believe there simply aren’t enough American workers with the skills the company needs or factories with sufficient speed and flexibility.

How the U.S. Lost Out on iPhone Work - NY Times

 I feel a huge amount of empathy for Mr. Saragoza, an Engineer (same degree as me, except from Cal Poly SLO, where I went to Pomona), who worked for Apple in the US, who got laid off off after Apple closed their manufacturing plant in the US and spent a lot of time job hunting, till becoming an electornics instructor at a local community college (the article was a bit mis-leading on his status, I googled him).
