The other side of this is that if you dropped the minimum wage requirement, assuming that it required paying our minimum wage and wasn't adjusted to China, then it would likely be significantly less. Instead we let the people making these product bust unions and even kill people trying to unionize as well as employ people in horrid conditions.

    Many American companies are multinationals who conduct most of their business (and hire most of their workers) overseas.  Employing Americans in those positions is difficult, as our tax system heavily discourages Americans from working overseas, and many foreign countries require we employ their citizens instead.
    This is a good point. The only real way to deal with this from a labor perspective is to have truly international unions, and for the American unions to be willing to go on strike to support their fellow union members overseas. It's really the only way that unions will be useful in dealing with international corporations.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
