China is undercutting good US Businesses by paying reduced postage, encouraging tariffs not to be paid, and not paying any business expenses in the US other than minimal Ebay and Amazon sellerís fees. These products are often inferior and unsafe, and the companies are not required to be registered in the US in any way, pay for business licenses, and they do not have product liability in the US. Online sales sites, specifically Ebay and Amazon, turn their heads to this because they still make their fees on any sales.(from a petition on Change.org )

Buying Cheap Items from Chinese Sellers Supports Slave Labor Sweatshops
Remember, as a buyer, if you purchase many of the thousands of items flooding ebay from Chinese sellers, you are helping to support the Chinese sweatshop factory system which employs extremely overworked and underpaid workers, many of them children. There are a number of good news articles about this which you can find and read using any search engine.
