Oceans Apart, part 252

Filed under: Uncategorized — ealing @ 10:46 pm

My copy of My Job Went to India arrived today. I’ve only just started flipping through it, but I was quickly struck by a cultural difference between the author and myself.

In the introduction, on page six, he writes, “Forming labor unions and picketing would be defeatist.” Without giving you the surrounding paragraphs, it’s hard to be completely fair to the author. Nonetheless I’m taken aback by the idea that exercising a right enshrined by the UN (article 23.4) twice (8.1) would be seen as a bad thing. For what it’s worth, I’m not a member of a trade union.
