As a result, the factory workers stopped work to protest and the police were called. The Chinese man offered to pay $500 in compensation for his action if the victims would withdraw their complaint, but the victims have said they want the case to go to court.

so he assaults some Khmer in front of 100's of other Khmer?
one day they will stand up and gut them like fish.
i guess managers do not read history.

i am truly appalled and fearful at what is happening and the potential for chaos given historical precedent.

"i am truly appalled and fearful at what is happening and the potential for chaos given historical precedent"

That is a fear worthy of sharing. The Khmer, a few druggie hotheads not withstanding, are a highly resilient albeit not docile race. Unfortunately when the shit hits the fan, the result is the same old shit everywhere. Nothing's learned, nothing's. changed.

In any case it is a grievous error to mistake their docility as willful compliance.

How about treating them right, let them have a meaningful union and a living wage. If mass productivity is a factor, mass employment may be called for.
