Compensation follows the law of supply and demand. People demand labor and individual Chinese are willing to supply it at a very low price. Instead of talking about wage slavery in the relatively well-paying coastal factories, oh new Chinese man, let's talk about the abysmal pay of the people that feed those workers.

You know... the farmers who toil under the sun daily and see but a pittance from their so called countrymen, people who don't even really care about them.

So, you marry a serf and depend on her for your survival?

North,

Do you like being a serf, xenophobe and racist?

What other disgusting things are you?

I agree about the factory labour.  Unfortunately the Chinese factories pay even lower wages and worse conditions than the foreign ones

Ain't that the truth, and they hire underage workers too......recent cases aplenty on TV here in China. Little girls of 13-16, paid about 3 kuai a day....now that's a form of slavery albeit compensated in one form or another. Can't just accuse the westerners of slavery in their history when it exists in the present in China and Asia on the whole.
