PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Last Friday HTC unveiled its entry-level Smartphone, aptly named the Smart. [...] However, what we'd like to tell you about is not the new handset, but instead what happened during the press event inside the Taipei 101. This news story hasn't made it outside of Taiwan so far and we felt it was worth reporting on, despite the event taking place a few days ago. As the press conference was drawing to a close and the group photos were about to be taken, the event was gate crashed by representatives for one of HTC's suppliers. A woman came in shouting with several other people following her and there was a general confusion among the media at the event. The HTC PR representatives were doing their best to drag her away from the stage, while she was trying to hand over some kind of a list to Peter Chou, the president and CEO of HTC."

A strong union movement is what the developing world needs. Before anyone argues, that's how we in the western world got to be treated like "people" by our employers.


Yeah, just look at Detroit. They're doing great. Once these guys unionize and get paid $40 an hour to put 4 screws on widgets all day long who will they outsource to?

Oh please! Your sarcasm is baseless. VW, Peugeot and a bunch of others' factory workers probably get the same amount or even more, but those are doing quite well. It's only US car makers that are having these problems.

Keep in mind, that trade unions aren't even doing anything to control the companies, though those trade unions are the BIGGEST shareholders(after the US govt now).
