It's the brothers from KC, they went to India and forced the workers to do meth. Then in a craze they attacked.



Harley may be the financial backer of the whole thing.

Gotta be the workers' fault. There is no way a wonderful, benevolent corporation like Honda could ever treat employees unfairly. Only Harley could be cruel and inhuman. Just look at the motorcycles they force their customers to buy!

Could this be the start of a modern union/workers rights movement in India? So far the MBAs on Wall Street have viewed Asia as a cheap non union labor pool i.e. outsourcing millions of jobs. Outsourcing opponents have viewed outsourcing as a march to the bottom (low wages) for all workers. Could this be the natural backlash that occurs when workers are exploited and not treated with dignity and respect? "A market correction?" Of all the places a Honda scooter plant. Interesting story Steven, thanks....

nah its all harleys fault or is it the dems, round up the usual suspects wheres Bill and Hillary. Actually this is probably an area where the union is doing some good unlike here where there a bunch of thugs. We needed unions in the early 20th century but not now. I think these developing countries are some what where we were in that time period as labor and economy goes and these are just the bumps to move up the socio/economic ladder

Just a guess... but by any chance are you a suburbanite beta-male office worker?



"We needed unions in the early 20th century but not now"



Having worked in a slaughterhouse butchering 1,200 head of cattle every day for 5 years I would disagree. There are still plenty of work places in America where workers need union protection... they're just not the kind of places where you would find young Republicans working.

They want the same pay and benefits as the workers at Royal Enfield.

ditto. Even in white collar professions like engineering, airline pilots, college professors, teachers, nurses have unions....Why? Cause people abuse power ...Especially young Republicans with MBAs who have never worked an honest day, physical work, in their life...(i.e. W.)

I'm happy to stand in solidarity behind any group of people who are trying to make better lives for themselves. Though apparently in India I'd probably want to stand much further behind them than I would in Chattanooga.
