Chris Buckley: Strike at Chinese textile mill boils over

From the International Herald Tribune:

Thousands of workers in a Hong Kong-owned textile mill in southern China staged a strike and protested for higher wages and clashed with police, prompting riot police to use tear gas and arrest workers, Chinese media reported over the weekend.

The strife erupted on Friday morning at the Futai Wool Mill in Zengcheng, near Guangzhou, and eyewitnesses said as many as 4,000 workers were at the factory gates, blocking traffic and chanting “raise our wages,” the Guangzhou-based New Express reported on Saturday.
