I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
We were China 60 -100 years ago. We manipulated and used currencies, labor rates, trading advantages, etc. to build and protect our own economy. Now the Chinese are copying our method, nearly exactly. Would that make us a bit hypocritical to state that what China is doing is wrong? It's not rocket science.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
1. Environmental rules are weak there. The regulations that exist there are largely unenforced.
2. Labor laws are almost completely unenforced there. You can get away with having child labor, 12 hour days, not compensating for overtime, and fire someone for no reason at all. Hell they can even charge you for the time it takes you to eat your lunch or go to the restroom.
3. The average salary is around 146 dollars a month (it may be a little higher now with inflation).
4. Local governments will give you whatever you want.

This just proves two things.
First, Disney is an evil company. Obviosly.
Second, that politicians are politicians because they want to make money for themselves at everybody elses expense.
The road to Hell and the road to Jahannam is the same damn road.
I became a conservative by being around liberals. I became a libertarian by being around conservatives. ~ Greg Gutfeld.
**** Disney and their investigation. They know what goes on in the factories over there.
What needs to happen is in my mind is that we need to have a set of published standards that all foreign import industries must live up to or they are band from doing business in this Country.
Those standards need to mirror those American Companies must meet.
This is a way that we can raise the bar around the world.
The only exception is wages. Other Nations have different wage scales and for us to demand they meet ours would drive up the price of every import and hurt the economy as a whole. Not to mention international trade.
