Partially, but most of it due to ppp (purchase power parity) which give US dollar massive buying power in China and other countries.

So why do they bitch about other countries doing that in America?

Edit: Love the fact that I'm being downvoted for pointing out what the rest of the world already recognizes about America's hypocrisy.

Tbf, Americans bitch about that a lot all the times. "Them Asians use slave labor" have been a trope since forever. It used to be Japan and now China. Hell, US government recently claimed the Chinese navy is built with slave labor.

You still haven't answered the question and TBF America still uses slave labor as well.

Edit: When America removes the right to use slave labor from the Constitution, then you'll have the right to make comments about other countries.
