Even a fully automated fab requires a lot of people , mainly engineers to make it run but less operators.

"The boost in employment would not come from TSMC or even Foxconn, which already have adopted highly automated manufacturing processes"

That kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it.

"However, the surrounding infrastructure companies providing key materials, equipment and logistics would add to job numbers."

That would depend on what infrastructure changes or additions are expected. It also requires the approval of the vendors, even if they were foreign. Would ASM or ASML build the extra plants?
