I call bullshiat. You can't do anything like this without lots and lots and lots of guns.

A worker's union would have saved those lives.

Assault bow and arrow!
These folks just need some bow and arrow control.

Oh, and some labor advice from the GOP.

Sounds like it was one hell of a tea party.

1. Put your house in the middle of tea plantation
2. Piss off the multitude of workers who apparently have access to poison tipped arrows
3. Do not profit

You could if they were semi-automatic assault bows. You know, the kind that fire one arrow at a time, over and over again.

Murder is OK as long as you really REALLY dislike the person.

We need apostrophe control to reduce the carnage that misuse of them causes.

Now that's how you collectively bargain.

Wow they were some angry tea pickers. Of course we are talking about the same folks that gang rape a girl because she was gang raped. Then add to that the story of the new born they burned alive because the mother died in child birth. This obviously meant the baby was a witch and had to burned. Not joking. This is how these folks treat each other. India is a technical giant with a dark ages ball and chain of deeply ingrained ignorance.

Hundreds of tea estate workers surrounded the plantation owner's home in India's northeastern state of Assam and set it on fire over a labor dispute, killing him and his wife, police said on Thursday.

At least in the very short term, they appear to have won the labor dispute.

Note to self: If your employees are standing at the ready to torch your home and murder you and your wife, you should probably consider their requests more carefully. Or at least tell themyou're considering their requests....

Yet another labour dispute which leads to a dead end.

Let this be a lesson to you all.

Yeah, because angry mobs armed with poisonous weapons do tend to be known for their listening skills and rational judgement.
 
2012-12-27 12:01:26 PM
Those workers sure had a lot of balls wanting a living wage and better conditions.
 
2012-12-27 12:05:37 PM
This is why I only drink free--range tea grown by Free men and women.

Not that Starbucks Cult Swill grown in Red China forced labor death camps.

Anyone forward this to the Waltons yet?

Stop the flow of conflict tea!

Now if someone would just implement some sort of tax on the tea and use that tax to make the lives of the workers better.
 
2012-12-27 12:10:48 PM
Steep price to pay for something brewing.
 
2012-12-27 12:12:20 PM
Stick it to the man! (with a poison-tipped arrow.)

Is this like that American Indian that drank a bunch of tea one day and later that night drowned in his own teepee?
 
2012-12-27 12:14:23 PM
We will see things like this happen more and more often.

Since they didn't use guns they didn't do anything socially abhorrent.

/being burned alive is acceptable violence, unlike being shot.

If semiautomatic weapons were available to civilians in India and he had one, maybe that angry mob would have kept their distance.

Or not.

Read it again. Slowly.

One thing is for sure, if those 700 plantation workers were getting paid so badly that it incited a riot even in India, they must have been really, really pu-erh.

Assam? Feh, not my cup of tea.
When they get around to burning their overlords in Darjeeling, wake me up.

You'll love the rich smokey flavour of our Assam Blend

*adjusts monocles, brushes out mutton-chops*

Well obviously they are all grumpy in the Raj from the bellies full of jackfruit.
 
2012-12-27 01:57:46 PM
OK, we've burned down the plantation, where do we report for work tomorrow?
Never understood why people during riots burned down their own neighborhood.

This is what happens when you treat your employees like shiat when they have access to the means to kill yo ass.

Pro tip: do not use slave labor unless you have vastly superior firepower to said slaves.

If your workforce is starting to imitate the angry villagers from a Frankenstein movie, it's probably a little late to consider binding arbitration.
