DaggerdaleDM--

I was not being belittling, I was trying to give a thoughtful response. I was trying to point out that a "fair wage" in the US is not necessarily a "fair wage" in China. As a Libertarian, I believe strongly that the market should set wages and prices.

As I said, forced labor is criminal and evil. That's a different case entirely.

DaggerDale,
First, I cannot understand why people feel that everything made in China came from a "sweet" ship.
Second, the standard of living in US and China is very different. What is considered minimal wages in North America actually worths a lot in China? Workers in China are not forced to work because they have to make a living. They prefer to work for foreign orders because they get paid more than the chinese counterpart even though their wages are still much lower.
Few years ago, I knew a chinese pediatric neurologist who was a department head of a local hospital. He could not make more than $1000 US per month under communist rule. When he got hired by a US corporation as a company physican, they paid him few thousand dollar a month. WOW, you may say that this is an abuse since an average family doctor in US makes about 150 to 200K at least a year. However, to that chinese doctor, he is now much happier.
There is no forced labor under Western Influence in China.

What I am trying to say is that without DF setting up a factory in China, those workers might actually earn less. They are not forced to work. They are actually happy to work. This is what capitalism is all about.
I also hope you realised that the true ideology of Communism is long dead in China.

Stefan has personally visited the factories in China where our products are made, and they would never be described as sweat shops. Simply put, Dwarven Forge would not exist without this resource as the market would not support $200 Room and Passage sets.

Thank you Dwarven Forge, for an upfront answer. I shall buy more and with no moral hesitation.

I hope you were not offended by me asking. More and more these days, a customer needs to know these kinds of things.

I seem to remember hearing that the real savings are only around 20% with all the shipping and overhead costs. More and more companies are starting to find out that it is not worth it.
