Quote
Cambodian military police opened fire with assault rifles on Friday to quell a protest by garment factory workers demanding higher pay, and human rights workers said at least four people were killed.

Chaos during nationwide strikes erupted for a second day as security forces were deployed to halt a demonstration by thousands of workers who refused to move and threw bottles, stones and petrol bombs at an industrial zone in Phnom Penh.

Only if the peons are willing to sweat in them.  Sometimes they just need to be 'lead' in the proper direction.

Well this is quite clearly the natural consequence of unions pushing wages above their market levels.

Right. If we paid them more than 12 cents a day, the job creators would lose incentive from being multi-millionaires instead of billionaires.
