For your consideration:

I am not aware of any 'slave labour' practises in China. I certainly have not seen it in SE China. Is it different there than here? Yes, absolutely, very different. But times, they are a - changin'.

China is most certainly not a 3rd world nation.

Labour costs in China are going up by double digit percentage points in many sectors with increases outstripping their economy's growth rate and most other economic indicators.

China is a net contributor to the IMF.

As for the world bank, they operate like a global central bank for nations... what of it? Here are some interesting economic stats about China from the world bank.

Thinking of moving manufacturing to China? You might want to seriously re-consider that and look to other emerging markets.
