The companies that use Chinese factories do so as they have a fine line to balance on, between keeping customers happy with product pricing and keeping themselves happy with profit margins. While customers will complain about “cheap Chinese labour” and employment opportunities not being made on home soil, the customers will complain equally as much, if not more, if the locally produced item suddenly costs substantially more (from labour costs). You can’t complain about Chinese manufacturing processes while enjoying the affordable results of it at the same time.

Great link. Clarifies a lot of questions on the how's and why's.
