Foreign students walk off Hershey

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/18/us...ted=all?src=tp

students, from countries including China, Nigeria, Romania and Ukraine

Thoughts? Are they being whiny or are they justified? Thoughts about companies hiring foreigners so social security and taxes are avoided?

Good! It will cost Hershey lots of money to learn a hard economic lesson of supply/demand.

They are just going to head over to the ICE offices and get a work permit so then they can work anywhere.

saying a summer program that was supposed to be a cultural exchange had instead turned them into underpaid labor.
Walt Disney World does exactly the same thing, only they use American interns as cheap labor.

I guess it's better than using illegals as underpaid and overworked slaves.

The yahoo article says no.

What do you all think about this quote from a exchange student from China considering China is known for *slave* labor?

“There is no cultural exchange, none, none,” said Zhao Huijiao, a 20-year-old undergraduate in international relations from Dalian, China. “It is just work, work faster, work.”

If American interns are willing to do it who are you to say it's wrong?

I'm all about the free market, that's why I'm glad Hershey is getting spanked learning this painful TANSTAAFL lesson.
