Living and Working in China- Employment

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 22, 2010


Back home there was a big scandal with Microsoft and Apple, they were employing underage children and working them like slaves. Well, unfortunately , welcome to China.
When you come you will see this all of the time, it is a dirty part of Asian values where the parents are the most important thing, thus the kids do anything possible for them.
Take for instance, the restaurant across the street from my house. The leader of the waitresses is 15 and the waitstaff runs from 13 to 17 years old. They are all underage and all illegal, but they all work there. Even the cops come, they do nothing about it, this is china.
The fact is that in Chinese companies this is so prevalent it is sad, typically the foreign firms are better and you don’t see this type of behavior, The kids work for around 110U$ per month but food, housing and clothing is free, but they are treated like dirt.
When the news broke about Apple, everyone was indignant, as if they didn’t know this before. Hey you guys it is commonplace here!China is worse than other places, but they really don’t respect humanity, its their culture. So if you want to complain, or do something about it, boycott Walmart and try not to buy goods made here when possible. If you just want to bitch, then continue to surf the net, enjoy your cheap Wal-Mart goods and shake your head when you see this type of activity.

China and Abortion

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 22, 2010


From a study about China and abortions of female foetuses. Time to Pray.

“Sex-specific abortions remained extremely commonplace,…”

The study said the key contributing factors to the phenomenon included the nation’s family-planning policy, which restricts the number of children citizens may have,…

The Global Times said abductions and trafficking of women were “rampant” in areas with excess numbers of men, citing the National Population and Family Planning Commission.

Illegal marriages and forced prostitution were also problems in those areas, it said. The report said the study urged the government to relax the so-called “one-child” policy and study the possibility of encouraging “cross-country marriages.”

China first implemented its population control policy in 1979, generally limiting families to one child,…exception of… ethnic minorities and other groups. It has said the policy has averted 400 million births.”

Post About China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 22, 2010


I saw this post and think the guy has some sound logic.

excerpt:

China is a bubbling cauldron.

There is another factor at play in China as well. Revolutions don’t happen when oppression is at its peak. They happen when political and social constraints are beginning to loosen. The chances of a counter revolution in 1930’s Russia were zero…..the country was dominated and anybody thinking about resisting the government was ruthlessly purged (about 50 million Russians were killed in the 30’s). Czarist Russia is the classic example of what happens when things loosen up. Russian people actually had a lot more freedom by 1910 than they ever had had before. That’s why Lenin was able to exploit WW I to ovethrow the government.

So, there is probably a lot more political turbulence in China than we know about.

Similarly, Iran is ripe to overthrow the Mullahs. If the Moron wasn’t just pleased as punch with his co-dictators in Iran, then he could throw a little fuel on that fire and possible instigate an overthrow of the regime. But of course, he is doing the exact oppposite. He loves the “stability” the Mullahs bring and, of course, Iran having nukes will make the world more fair and contribute to the destruction of the United States.
