U.S. Corps Blocking China Labor Law

For a long time, I have argued that our problem with China is not really the difference in currency nor, on its face, the trade deficit. At heart, the real issue is the truly abysmal working conditions faced by millions of Chinese workers--working conditions that are the reason corporations love China and love moving production overseas. And, now, I see corporations agree. Many of the largest corporations--many of whom contribute significant amounts of money to the Republican and Democratic parties and their candidates--are doing everything possible to keep their slave wage heaven in China. Check it out: this is one of the most important economic issues facing our country.
