Two production facilities close as workers strike again
10 June 2010

Honda has had to halt production at two of its four car assembly factories in China after another strike by workers.

Honda said the walkout at its Foshan Fengfu facility, which is 70 per cent owned by its Chinese subsidiary Yutaka Giken, started on Monday.

Negotiations to resolve the dispute have begun.

Last week's strike was resolved when workers received a 24 per cent pay rise.

Chinese workers with tintanet are obviously seeing all the nice things they could buy if only they could afford them. Expect major upheavals in China workplace, followed by a levelling out of the world economic picture as Chinese folk start using their bigger wagepackets to buy good quality Western-made stuff (made more cheaply now that we're on tightly controlled/poverty wages). It's a natural balancing process. For us, it's all good. All we need do is use our manufacturing industries to exploit these emerging economies. Oh. Well, it sounded good up till then.
