Wages are improving during the past few years. Maybe cannot say underpaid because its still better ...
While it's widely known that foreigners in China generally earn more than their Chinese colleagues -- sometimes obscenely high, the Chinese have themselves to blame -- at least in part. Is hiring foreigners absolutely essential? Can the Chinese companies do without them? For quite a number of them, the answer is yes. I have known some Chinese employers who hire foreingers simply to make their undertaking "look more international".
Also, are the foreigners all qualified? I think you may well know the answer, and perhaps have met a few quacks. For them, they are paid higher simply because they are, yes, foreigners.
However, for quite a number of highly qualified foreigners, they should be paid more for the simple fact that they have to travel all the way from the other end of the globe to China and bring their talent to the country. Besides, almost all of them would have to adapt to the Chinese culture, which, more often than not, is vastly different from their. If more money can actually do the trick and help them settle in the country, why not?
And, don't forget another thing called "global pay".
