CONDITION OF THE WORKERS IN ASIA: Studies in India, China and Other Asian Countries

In the present stage of imperialist capitalism the condition of the workers in the manufacturing and assembling factories or workshops in the developing and underdeveloped countries is incredibly horrible. Contracted by the giant multinational corporations through multi-layered intermediaries, the subcontracting companies running ‘glittering’ and ‘flagship’ enterprises in many countries, tightly integrated to the global supply chain, are transferring enormous burden of manufacturing and assembling on to the workers squeezing them under deplorable and severely hazardous working conditions. These workers are super-exploited and expropriated to the extreme. They are dehumanized and exhausted to an unbelievable extent. The imperialist capital is making super-profits at the expense of these workers partnering with the capitalist classes of these countries. Update Study Group has investigated and depicted the process of exploitation and the degree of dehumanization of the workers in the production chain in several Asian countries.
