Well thats not true for everyone really
The people who work in the factory are the ones who are subsidising the prices




Fair enough on your viewpoint - here is mine on this vast subject:-

1. Without going too deeply into economics, one reason why goods from China (and some parts of the Far East) are cheaper is due to a cheaper cost of living out there meaning cheaper labour. Yes, there are stories of terrible conditions but there are also stories of folks having employment in the technology industries and actually making a better life for themselves.... China now has more and more people entering a new 'middle class' due to its huge economic growth and prosperity. We are actually now starting to export meat to China as more and more people out there can actually afford it.

2. You are making your point using a PC / Mac or mobile device that will have components within it that have been made in a factory where the workers get paid far less than you or I. The words will be transmitted across the Internet using servers where more cheap Far Eastern technology is used.

3. Any UK built musical device that features electronic components will almost certainly have had some of its parts manufactured in China / Far East.

So my thoughts are 'how can you turn a blind eye to that but then get upset about one of these pedals?'
