People ask about the role of foreign investors promoting good labour practices in China. This is not a logical question. The goal of investors is to make a profit, not to protect labour rights, and similar questions are not asked to foreign investors regarding the protection of labour rights in Canada. Workers rights can only be protected by organised workers...
...It must be reiterated that multinationals do not promote good labour practices. In fact, they must be made to comply with Chinese law. If they do not, Chinese workers must hold foreign companies responsible and take legal action insisting on the protection of workers' rights. The most fundamental element of democracy is people's participation. The future of China must be built on a new foundation of the rule of law and participatory civil society.
