They've already proven they don't mind abusing employees and don't care for human rights by producing everything in China where they legally can. To trust that they wouldn't treat Americans the same makes no sense.

So what is to stop an company from paying it's workers a decent wage, bragging about how much money it is making then all of a sudden decide that it dosen't like paying the wages it is paying and cuts wages aboard all while making it's employees work harder.
