    And trump is aiming to bring jobs back to the US from China. I believe the minimum wage in Beijing was $2.90 in 2014 and is supposedly rising by 20% annually.

    Right, here's the latest on China's minimum wage I could find:


    China increases minimum wage rates

    The U.S. isn't the only large nation currently dealing with wage issues for its lowest-paid workers.

    In China, where city and provincial governments set minimum wage standards, a number of regions are moving to raise employee pay. Starting in April, the minimum wage for workers in Shanghai will rise to $293 per month (1,820 Chinese yuan), the highest in mainland China ...

    If Trump wants to bring jobs back to the US from China maybe he should start with his daughter, who is moving the manufacturing of her shoes from China to Ethiopia because the labor costs are EVEN CHEAPER than China. The average China factory worker makes 6 TIMES what an Ethiopian factory worker does. They're trying to get as close to slavery as they legally can.

    Ivanka Trump’s shoe collection may be moving from “made in China” to “made in Ethiopia”

    There's cheaper labor to be had in Ethopia than in China.
