Migrant workers carrying bowls leave a factory for lunch in Dongguan in China's southern Pearl River Delta January 24, 2011. Millions of migrant factory workers have started streaming back to China's interior for the annual Lunar New Year holidays. Amid widespread concerns among factory workers at looming labour shortages, many manufacturers in the region dubbed "China's world factory" say they may have no choice but to raise wages significantly after the holiday break to lure back and retain quality workers, which could further erode the region's competitiveness.
