3,000 Chinese Workers Go On Strike At Decoro Factory
Furniture World News
According to an article appearing on the website of "New York Newsday" (www.newsday.com), the "Workers at a factory for the Italian sofa maker DeCoro were striking to protest alleged beatings by a foreign supervisor amid a dispute over pay cuts, workers and local reports said Thursday."
The paper further reported that, Decoro confirmed that 3,000 workers are currently on strike.
Other industry sources note that furniture factories in some parts of China are having trouble finding and keeping workers. Workers would rather work in factory settings considered "cleaner" than those that make furniture. This is causing upward pressure on wages and working conditions.
