The reason why products are cheaper in China are because of lack of labor laws. So they use child labor, forced labor, slave labor, etc. They also have few environmental protection laws. This also makes it cheaper to produce products. US products do have these restrictions, so it is more expensive to produce products in the United States. Companies like Apple go to China for their products becauset is cheaper .. but then they should not pretend to be so environmentally conscious and they should not pretend to be so socially conscious. By simply producing their products in China, they are not either.
Apple is hypocritical. How they pretend to act in the public eye is very different from how they actually act. They appear to be concerned with customer privacy, yet, offer up user's private data to third party companies. They appear to be egalitarian while having no fairness or equality in the workplace.
