because a broken leg should be the same all over the world.The Western world should be upset about the unfair competition ... keeping taxes low by not having a public health system. Private health care is probably more effective but causes unnecessary suffering to people not covered by it. Those low taxes results in higher investments.
US use this totally inhuman treatment of many workers to outcompete Europe and Canada!
(The above is a bit tounge-in-cheek. The US health care system is fscked, but so is my local Swedish public system. :-( )
Seriously, you have no sense of history.
The workers at many of those factories probably have better health care then the rest of the working population of that country.
If you want to argue, give good references showing why the economists are wrong, who argue that those factory jobs (etc) better the economy and people's life in all of Asia.
It was less than a century we had child workers in the west. Human rights for women isn't exactly new, either.
