What globalization means: 47 to 92 cents per hour for autoworkers in India

Here: "General Motors CEO urged to address India factory strike"

"The factory workers are paid just 47 to 92 cents an hour and allegedly suffer from spinal cord injuries due to inhumane and unsafe working conditions. Halol's management is also accused of violating the Provident Fund Act and regulations outlined in the Industrial Safety and Health Act."

And it's not factory workers making cars sold in India,

"The Halol GM factory produces the Chevrolet Cruze, Aveo, Tavera and Optra line of vehicles."

All of which are for sale here.
