Burma Democratic Concern: We are with exploited strike workers of Tai Yi (BST)
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) sends our solidarity with strike workers of Tai Yi shoe factory of Burma who are peacefully demanding to have fare pay, better employee rights and better working condition. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) members are with the strike workers of Tai Yi of Burma.
We are very sad to learn that the workers from Chinese Owned Tai Yi shoe factory which is located in Hlaing Thar Yar Industrial Zone in Rangoon, Burma are mostly rural women are just asking for 150 kyat (19 cents) per hour from 75 kyat (less that 10 US cents) an hour.

Drivers of many passenger vehicles that run between Mandalay and Muse, a distance of 288 miles (460.8 km), are drug users, according to concerned travelers. There are two stops on the way: 38 mile station near Hsenwi and Pang Makhaw (Zibin Sakhan) between Kyaukme and Gokhteik. While passengers are having their meals, the drivers are taking methamphetamines. Some of them even double as drug carriers. (SHAN)
