Jeff Bezos has been employing slave labor at his company for some time.

Tech firms like Amazon and Apple can easily reserve a dollar extra per device for 'manufacturing costs' to enable Foxconn to pay their workers better wages and improve the labor conditions.

An Iphone 8 64GB costs $ 699. With material at $ 288 and basic manufacturings costs at $ 7.36 it costs $ 295 to build an Iphone 8.

Foxconn pays a worker on the line $ 1.78 an hour.

So as many T clowns believe that this kind of labor can return to the US :)
