RE: july 25th
As kind of my belated comparision write up, (hey doing work? that'd be a NEW idea)
Basically i found it interesting comparing the labour relations and rights in the developed and developing world….
Despite the huge difference between wages and actual rights, it seems the Americans are more militant, i guess not because they the South-east Asians feel they are getting a good deal, just they have no legal form of settling disputes and are more dependent on the meagre rates of pay they get than the Americans who at least have some form of welfare system and recourse should they be unfairly dismissed. The article also highlights the abuse of workers rights both set of workers suffer…
Its interesting how the issue of outsourcing has become a significant issue in the race for the American presidency, many americans evidently feel it is threatening their job security.
Anyway as a side note…. RIP John Peel. Always a legend, will be missed.
