Would it be legal to fine companies who create jobs in China due to human rights violations in China?
In other words, if China doesn't increase wages, and worker standards, can we fine companies who build in China, thereby bringing jobs home by either fines being too steep, or worker salaries being too steep in China? Dr. Redthumb: Perhaps if the U.S. violated human rights by our employment standards like China does, but we do not, and the terms could be made by the U.N.

Or better yet... We could offer them workers permits and they can collect minimum wage.

Are you going to send people over to China to investigate every company? The truth is, most companies in the west don't even know their supplier very well. So this theory if defunct.

Those aren't human rights violations and WTO is most likely to stop it and fine us.

As long as China makes the cheap crap we buy, and we keep buying the crap they make, nothing will change. We can't afford to make crap here because of minimun wages and the unions. Go figure.

NO. And the UN has no jurisdiction in the sovereign United States of America. And besides the UN turns its head away from the human rights violations in China. Terms made by the UN are inept, insignificant and ineffective.
