And if they did that wouldnt Stauntons etc go out of business too ?
"Are these kids made to work"
Nobody (well hardly anybody) is "made" to work but I think youll find that a lot of people like to have little luxaries such as food and a roof (albeit a bit of corrugated sheet) over their heads. Selfish of them maybe but thats human nature for ya
"Is the money so bad for the economic conditions they live in -Do all large companies who build factories in other countries not pay relevant to the countries economic status"
The economic conditions are the way they are BECAUSE the money people get is so bad. Nike/Gap/Addidas are in these countries BECAUSE the pay is so low. Why do you think Clothes factories In Ireland and the UK are closing down or moving out to sweatshop economies.
"Do they need this money to survive. Where would they get the money if Nike did not have a factory there"
Well If Nike could employ the PARENTS of these kids and give them decent wages and conditions but its cheaper to enslave and abuse kids
