Chinese Workers

Chinese stores are a trip, they are packed with people, unfortunately most of them are employees. The idea is that in China, you can procure the services of an able-bodied worker for about U$120 per month. That means you practically own them, no one obeys the law, so you can work them 6 days a week, 12 hours a day. So, when you enter a store here, you are surrounded by these workers. Its not as if they are customer friendly, its another interesting Chinese secret. They are all afraid, in China, the boss over hires, it happens everywhere. They do this so no one worker feels to confident and indispensable, all Chinese stores do this.
