Saw this documentary about the world's largest factory and it is really impressive how China is able to keep extremely production levels with low automation.Now the question is, with minimum wage increasing, how long will that be economically sustainable

Default I avoid products made in China...

I avoid products made in China, not because I buy American, but because of inferior quality. Anything I buy that comes from China is always sub par. It is unavoidable of course, but when I am holding something and there are other products to choose from, China always has the crappiest product. The other products almost always cost more, but as the old saying goes, 'you get what you pay for'.

You must be doing some magic, because nowadays is extremely hard to avoid products made in China. In most cases there is nothing made somewhere else, except you privately import that item just for yourself.
And many products not made in China are assembled from parts /ingredients made in China.
Right now China is still keeping low prices by using manpower, but that is changing slowly. They will rise the prices knowing their domination on the market, and limited alternatives consumers will have.

Here is a list of products still made in the USA - it looks short and sad

They will have to. The demand they created is just very challenging.

I feel sorry with all the workers that will lose their jobs.
