Over a thousand of workers in a factory of a known Japanese watches’ brand in China have been on strike to claim what they consider an abuse of power by their managers.
It happened on the factory “Guan-Xing Exactness” where workers were protesting because their salaries were going to be decreased in function of the times and sometimes that they passed on the bathroom.
“Your needs, you do at home. When you are going to work, it is not time of reading the newspaper while shitting. Also, you know that if you don’t drink water you don’t need going to piss. Easy as that and they the only thing that they want is to shirk and to earn money without working,” told me one of the creative brain managers of the disciplinary action.
Really, if you count the time that you pass: going to the toilet, smoking, gossiping, having a mid-morning snack… the real time of production is ONE hour from EIGHT.
And there are still people who don’t like going to work!
