Where the Wages Are Really Low

As everyone knows, China’s low wages make it an attractive place to setup factories for certain kinds of manufactured goods. Except so many factories have moved to China that the country’s not nearly as poor as it used to be. So the sweatshoppers of the world are moving to new horizons:

As costs have risen in China, long the world’s shop floor, it is
slowly losing work to countries like Bangladesh, Vietnam and Cambodia — at least for cheaper, labor-intensive goods like casual clothes, toys and simple electronics that do not necessarily require literate workers and can tolerate unreliable transportation systems and electrical grids
.

Li & Fung, a Hong Kong company that handles sourcing and apparel manufacturing for companies like Wal-Mart and Liz Claiborne, reported that its
production in Bangladesh jumped 20 percent last year, while China, its biggest supplier, slid 5 percent
.

This is the stuff progress is made of. The Chinese economy is still growing, having moved into some higher-end products. And even though both wages and working conditions at apparel factories in Bangladesh are terrible, they represent opportunity relative to current conditions. What’s more, with luck the Bangladeshes and Vietnams of the world will use the revenue provided by these factories to upgrade their infrastructure and teach people to read. Perhaps the most significant problem with China’s currency policies is that it’s retarding this process and making it harder for poorer countries to start working there way up the ladder of economic opportunity.

Sweatshoppes: slowly raising the standard of living around the world.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Senate Floor Speech on Public Debt

......as they lower the standard of living somewhere else.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
