Terence Chea: Chinese immigrant workers protest loss of jobs to China

From AP, via the San Jose Mercury News:

Chinese immigrant workers marched through the streets of downtown San Francisco on Tuesday, shouting slogans and waving signs to protest the loss of garment jobs they say are being outsourced to China.

Former employees of San Francisco-based apparel maker Nova Knits Inc. claim they were laid off last month without prior notice, severance pay or benefits in violation of state labor laws. And the workers – mostly middle-aged Chinese women who speak little English – believe their jobs are being shipped to China, the world’s largest clothing manufacturer.
