Because if you pay them less than what’s worth an assembly robot and it’s maintenance it’s still cheaper to hire people

Same reason the sony factories used to employ more people.

The automation doesn't destroy 200,000 jobs overnight. The factories you are referencing look a lot different post covid versus iphone 7. There are some design failures that are specific to apple products limiting automation for a couple of more years.

The technology for AI/ML digital twinning(nvidia omniverse isaac) and fine robot control is only months old not years.
