here is your poof ...

"Undocumented immigrants, who are perhaps the most exploited of all workers, are being encouraged to make complaints and are promised they won't be punished for their illegal status. As the Labor Department explains, all workers deserve decent treatment, whatever their legal status."

To bad the same doesn't apply for migrant workers in China and they are LEGAL citizens.

Are we been selective..?  c’mon you aren’t that stupid, are you?

Nope. And Nope.   At least a movement is going on in the USA to try to improve the situation, not so in China.  This issue has come up in China for many years.  ANd my opinion is that ANY boss that does not pay his workers on time should be jailed immediately, no matter what country.
