Places like China Japan ect dont have a demand on high wages where places like the UK USA ect so to keep the cost down of a product to make maximum profit from it you look where it is cheapest to have it built and if it is over seas then that is where you go.

Yes its not helping your country but that is business for you. There is noting stopping then from doing this and as long as there is noting stopping them it will keep happening.

At the end of the day the world evolves around money. I am not a fan of any apple product but but I can see they are just here to make money like any other company in the world as this is why we have them 1st and foremost.
