Robots vs. Romanians

There's a wire story about a cute little Renault for 5000 Euros (well, a bit more than that, but still). Interesting just in seeing the differences between and growth of car cultures, but also for a note toward the bottom: "The simple design means assembly at the Romanian plant is done almost entirely without robots. That lets Renault capitalize on the country's low labor costs."

The first time humans have been so matter-of-factly cheaper than robots?
