Strikes halt work at Toyota and Honda plants in China

The news from China's auto factories, as brought to you by Labour Start and the BBC. Workers at other Chinese plants have struck and received pay raises of 25 percent. Union organizers will not be surprised that one unnamed worker was quoted as saying:

"I feel not respected by the human resources department. They often say 'You can leave if you think other plants are better', when we ask for something."
