Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The minimum wage in the US is $7.25. Adjusted using the PPP multiplier that would be about $3 in Vietnam.  At forty hours a week that's $120 or roughly double the monthly minimum wage in Vietnam's urban centers.  You're saying that your typical Vietnamese peasant or worker wouldn't be interested in working a moderately physically demanding and very mind numbing job at eight times the minimum wage for forty hrs/wk of work?
