You fools, it is not how much digits you are receiving per time period; it is how much those digits (money) can buy. In China, the standard of living for the average worker is better than it is in the states for many things. The difference is that the Chinese government has a solid fiscal policy. The Chinese save their money instead of buying # they don't need and Americans sit in their huge homes bitching about not having a job that pays the bills anymore. Your money has been devalued folks. Wakey Wakey... But sure go on and blame someone else, after all Obama does it all the time.
(Aug.15) -- China's image as a place where workers will meekly put up with long hours, low pay and lousy working conditions might need updating. And as that changes, so too might the legendary low price of Chinese products.
In the latest in a series of developments indicating a shifting balance between labor and Chinese managers, 10 laid-off workers at a Panasonic electronics factory in Shanghai reportedly are negotiating for better severance packages after a strike last week.
