And 'that Japan deserves the Nobel Peace Prize 2010. The leaders of China Guangzhou Honda have managed to go on strike aa the 1,400 Chinese workers in their plant parts.
The demand for workers? Wage increase of 80%?
The two days of negotiations led to a historic achievement ... 24% increase in wages amounting to an increase of 32 usd per month. Yes you read correctly the wage will increase from $ 150 to $ 182 per month.
It seems to be on the set of Ocean 13, or today's comic.
