Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Use a Burning Nike to Light a Meth Pipe:
Yep, this is another goddamn blog post about the awful lives of the poor people in Asia who make all the useless shit that litters our Western lives. In this case, it's the Sabrina Garment Manufacturing factory outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The 4000 (mostly) women who work at the factory making sportswear for global monstrosity Nike went on strike on May 21 for slightly higher wages. Yesterday they attempted to enter the factory to protest, but 1000 cops confronted them with batons and cattle prods.
It's not the first clash in this strike, with a pregnant woman being beaten by the police in a previous confrontation.
Currently, the workers make $102 a month, which the company says is above minimum wage. Which means that for a little more than a month's salary, a worker could afford a pair of totally sick kicks.
