Battle cry of the Western Liberal: "I don't understand what went wrong. We were just trying to help these people. It isn't our fault that we completely screwed things up for them!"

This is why you have to love America. You can make whatever you can make. Of course people will argue with this. Simply put. No brains or excuses.

They did not ask for no such thing, it was force on them by who else us (USA) ways of living and trying to impose it on those folks. I would be too. I know first hand because my mother worked two jobs when she came to the stated twenty years ago to have enough money to send back home to us because they were no jobs back home. The problem with most american born is their lack of understanding of other country's cultures and ways of living. USA's ways are usually not the best for those people, but somehow we think we are the best and we know it all when in fact its the opposite.

The problem, quite simply, is low wages. It isn't enough to simply reduce hours worked. The workers are being paid wages so low that they must work a lot of overtime to make a living income. If you're going to reduce hours worked then you have to insist on wages being increased to compensate. And we have to be willing to pay a little more for our toys :)

That is indeed true, but the chances of the wages being increased in China are negligable. However, people need to understand the Chinese are practically a different species - they were raised to understand that work...is WORK....they aren't coddled like Americans are. Of course you'll have a few stressed out employees that go postal. Lot's of companies have depressed emplpyees. They need medical help; they don't speak for the entire working body.

What the fuck? People give them what they want and they just keep complaining for what they asked for? What has society come to?
