Is Chinese Labor As Bad As It Seems?

We’ve all heard stories about cheap Chinese labor that aren’t always pleasant to the ears. Almost everything sold globally is made in China. China has one of the cheapest labor/ manpower in the market, which is why multinational companies prefer doing business in this part of the globe because they get to save lots of money in the process. But how well do we really know about what’s going on in many of these Chinese factories? Don’t workers get paid right and do they really work under extreme and often unsafe working conditions?

Wherever you are in the world, it is hard to compete with Chinese labor and companies know that. Name any popular brand you know and they likely have an offshore office or factory in China to help them meet production demands. For the average Chinese person, these factories provide opportunities for them to earn some money to provide for their own families, obtain basic rights and send their kids to school. And no matter how difficult working conditions are, most Chinese don’t complain about it and just do their jobs to the best that they can.
