Foxconn hires 100,000 workers for Apple iPhone 6 assembly?

Right now, work should be starting on the assembly line for the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6. Later, the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet should be rolling off the line. Interestingly, Foxconn hired 90,000 new workers last year to help them manufacture the Apple iPhone 5s.
Besides the Apple iPhone 6 and the phablet variant of the phone, the tech titan will most likely continue to produce a 4 inch model, which will be the entry-level handset in Apple's 2014-2015 line-up.

Americans will not work for low payment as Chinese workers do.

Not surprising, as of 2012, China has 1.351 billion people vs USA's 313 million population therefore labor there is cheap.

That number is huge, wish American companies could do something like that. So Foxconn being Taiwanis company is hiring Chinese to do the work? Something I really want know is if these employees are permanent or temporary until they have produced enough phones to beat demand?
