THIS IS STILL ON TV YOU WET NAPKINS.
There are people out there who are neither jealous of the wealthy, nor desire wealth in absurd proportions. There are people who believe exploiting poor nations' labor and resources for personal gain is modern-day imperialism and slavery.
I absolutely detest the vegetable Okra; it’s one of the very few foods I’ve tried that I do not care for at all. So if I went to a restaurant and the customer across from me had a plate piled high with it, I wouldn’t denounce him for enjoying “absurd” amounts of Okra. I would say hey, eat up, I haven’t the slightest interest in that. an individual who truly cares little for wealth will have a similar attitude toward the wealthy.
Now if he claims that the reason for his reaction concerns the well being of the poor, then I would direct his attention to the fact that the same American Free Market system responsible for the vast wealth of certain individuals has simultaneously lifted the standard of living for even the poor to levels that were once unimaginable. If we are truly driven by a concern for the poor, and not a preoccupation with what the wealthy possess, then all that will matter for us is what will improve the lot and condition of the poor. Here are two earlier posts from this blog that I really think you should view.
Your statement about the poor in other nations brings us right back to this same theme. Does the activity of these businesses in foreign nations expand the options and opportunities of the poor beyond what was available before the businesses arrived? By all logic yes, otherwise the poor there would most commonly opt for employment elsewhere. The usage of the word “exploit” in your question seems to be entirely indifferent to what concretely improves the plight of the poor in those countries and is instead preoccupied with how much advantage the business owner is enjoying as a consequence of the labor.

“In the legislature, promptitude of decision is oftener an evil than a benefit”
Alexander Hamilton, Federalist no 70 (via philosophicalconservatism)
Translation: In the legislature promptness in deciding is more often an evil, than a benefit.
