    As reported this AM on NPr, Honda workers in souther China are on strike for higher wages. ( Which by the way is abreaking the law in China) They have in fact shut down production of Honda automobiles until late this week. So if working 40 or more hrs per week at a salary of $280.00 per month is to much for Honda to pay employees were will production go next? Reportedly Honda is confident aht a 20% increase in pay will secure a quick end to the strike. What do employees in U.S. Auto plants make?
