People love to bash on companies that ship labor overseas for using slave labor basically and yet as soon as it affects them they are no longer humanitarians.

I've heard my whole life growing up how cheap labor is in China and other places and how horrible it is. Now we are celebrating it cause Trump is the one that puts his foot down?

No one is giving a China a pass for how they tend to treat workers. They are just dismissing tariffs as a way to combat it.

Tariffs will only make things worse for the cheap labor, got to work even cheaper to beat the tariffs. Consumers and workers will pay the price for those tariffs while Trump can sluice the profits of the extra taxes to the rich.
