Companies don't force anyone to do anything. They set the standard and you are free to abide or reject that standard by not working for them.

You are comparing apples to oranges, this isn't the 1800's, where you can pick and choose the utmost worst example of the industrial revolution labor and apply it to today's time.

Why dont you highlight Henry Ford who operated in the 1920's, and had the highest paid workers and some of the best known working conditions of his time, decades before any of the modern regulations were enacted. He essentially created the 5 day 40 hour work week without any government help.

The cheap prices of Wal Mart have also forced manufacturing overseas. Wal Mart is able to dictate prices to suppliers, and if the supplier cannot meet that price they either lose the business or do things like move manufacturing overseas. Wal-Mart has also been guilty of doing sketchy things like making hourly employees punch out and then continue working off the clock. Their low prices don't just come out of thin air.
Wal Mart didn't force manufacturing overseas, it was a natural development of a global economy. Italians, German, and Brits all outsource overseas as well.

United States currently manufactures more today than it ever has in the past. Problem is that automation does most of this manufacturing.
