Walmart: China workers free to unionize; US workers not so much.

The Raw Story | First Wal-Mart union begins in China thanks to gov't
The first Wal-Mart trade union in China was formed after the company bowed to government demands for organized labor in its stores, The New York Times reported Friday.

Wal-Mart's reluctance to allow unions, particularly in the United States where they remain banned from stores, has been a point of controversy for many years. But the government-controlled All-China Federation of Trade Unions fought for the right to create branches in the company's 60 outlets.

Sure those commie Red Chinese are trying to . . . um . . . destroy freedom by giving their workers . . . um . . . forget it.
