43 labor strikes in last three months

Companies in southern Vietnam have been hit by 43 labor strikes over the last three months, 16 of them against Japanese and South Korean owned plants, reports Radio Australia. Workers have walked out over wages, working hours, rest breaks and social insurance. The strikes are partly due to a labor shortage in industrial parks and export processing zones around Ho Chi Minh City. Early last year, tens of thousands of workers went on strike in Vietnam, mostly against foreign owned companies.
