Aaah, the typical socialist statement. The more we can blame corporations, the better.

Imposing tariffs is rarely the answer. Instead, exercise your power as a consumer and don’t buy their products. If we impose a tariff on imports from China they will do the same to our exports. Awareness is the first step, but keep in mind that in many cases (although not all) our outsourced jobs pay the locals more than what they could earn on their own.

We, Americans, deserve a large part of the blame; as do other so-called developed countries. We, in America, have OSHEA regulations to protect our labor. This degenerate regime operates in opposite. We, as consumers, only care about low pricing but could care less about the true “human cost” behind the low prices. To that end, we, in the West, lost our own production bases. We corrupt our on moral by consuming blood labor produced products. Sure, a few Chinese death, who cares? I like to.
We, if we consider ourselves as citizens of DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, need to look beyond our parochial sphere. We need to hold those who immorally exploit our fellow human beings responsible for their acts. We can start by asking our government to levy heavy tariffs (500%) on imports from countries that do not possess and enforce labor protection legislation as our OSHEA regulations. And to companies like Apple, Intel, Dell, GE, GM, Wal-Mart, and the likes, we ask our government to extend OSHEA requirement on products and parts that these conglomerates employ and penalize them for each and every infractions. After all, with all of the saving these corporations are benefiting that they are not truly passing on to their consumers, they can afford it.
