Amidst ever-clearer signs its economy is rolling over, China is seeing a sharp rise in labor unrest, as something new - factory closures and salary cuts - combines with poor working conditions. Despite reports of labor shortages, one watcher says firms do not hesitate to pass on the effects of slowing orders to their workers.

    Being China, I'm sure they provide their displaced workers with 99 weeks unemployment, and a generous supply of food stamps.

    The workers always get the short end of the stick...no matter what area of the world.
    Oh, btw, Happy Thanksgiving. Wait...do the Chinese even have a Thanksgiving?
    No matter. Here's to all people on earth...we here in the U.S. wish you all....dignity.
    And integrity, especially from your government. With those ideals you will survive and thrive. No matter your color, religion, or ethnicity. Just don't give up.

    I think we can start a movement called Occupy Tianenmen Square where foul smelling hippies and rejects try and embarass the ruling Party elite. We'll see socialism at its best.
