Currently reading: Honda China workers end strike
24 per cent pay hike agreed

Honda has given Chinese plant workers a 24 per cent pay rise to end a strike.

The workers, who worked at four vehicle assembly plants in China, withdrew their protests after the wage increase was announced.

The workers' action was noteworthy because striking is technically banned in China.

Despite this, workers for several multi-national companies have recently downed tools, demanding salaries that match counterparts around the world.

Re: Honda China workers end strike

So why now build cars for export from China? If wages match those outside China but there is the disadvantage of a totalitarian regime who wont even enforce their "no-strike" rule (that I am sure would have been hailed as an advantage by the government to investing companies) what's the point.
