Don't worry, the shoe manufacturers will find some other third world hellhole to make their shoes if China get all unionized... I think it would cost something like a dollar and a half more to have them made in the USA (but the manufacturer would charge you double because it would say "Made in USA").

They are learning what we found out several years ago: that management promises of pensions and retirement aren't worth shiat.

To my understanding it's illegal to have unions in China. The China government has "unions" for the workers but these institutions are actually pro-business.

It's funny how in this country "Unions" are considered "communists" but actual communists (and fascists regimes  which I think China is actually closer too) out law unions.

In the US(and most of the civilized world), we call those kind of labor unions staffing agencies.

How long until these people get disappeared or fired for committing some random crime?
