Happening NOW: 30,000 Chinese workers strike at the world’s largest producer of athletic shoes such as Nike and Adidas over pay, benefits, and the right to choose a union. The strike, China’s largest in decades, has shutdown production for two weeks and caused the company’s stock price to plummet.
Bloomberg News reports:
"Workers have disrupted production in Yue Yuen’s Dongguan factory complex, which employs more than 40,000 people, since April 14 in a dispute over pay, benefits and the right to pick their own union. More than 50 percent of the workers were on strike today, Liu said. China Labour Watch, which estimated the striking workers at about 30,000, said a small number had returned to work, without quantifying it.”

my mother has been murdered,
i really need help
I wanted to boost this with the note for skeptics that this looks completely legit:
This is what happened. It’s a pretty awful. Warning for domestic violence.
Here’s a pic uploaded by the news site showing her with her kids. Note the older girl’s appearance
Here’s what appears to be the full version of the first pic in the top news article, and a corrobating selfie from the day before, verifying that the blogger’s the same girl, that does not match anything on google images.
It’s exactly as OP says. Actually given the circumstances I think it’s even worse than OP let on here. I don’t usually reblog donate2charity posts but in this case it’s as horrible and as true as it says on the tin so yeah. Followers, please consider this one.
This is one of my closest friends and I can verify the truth in this post. Her mother was taken from her in a case of domestic violence and she needs help from you if you have it in your heart and your pockets to do so.
i am so upset and sorry someone really had to do all that to prove that this was true. and i am sending all my love to the OP and her sibling. i am sorry. <3
boooost! please help these kids out.
