Low wages spark labor strikes in Myanmar

With lowest wages in the region, workers in factories 
established with foreign investment in Myanmar go on strike 
due to extremely low wages in 2012.
On 6 February, 1,863 workers from Taiyi Shoe Factory owned 
by an entrepreneur from Taiwan came out on strike in protest 
of the wage cut for Chinese New Year holidays, and demanded 
a wage hike and other benefits.
