SHANGHAI — Mass protests at a major Chinese shoe factory reflect the stark changes taking place in the country’s labor market, particularly in the manufacturing sector.
Yue Yuen Holdings Inc., a Taiwanese-owned shoe manufacturer for global brands, including Nike Inc. and Adidas AG, is at the center of a massive labor protest after at least 1,000 workers took to the streets demanding better employment benefits at its factory in southern China on Tuesday, according to the state-run China Business News, or CBN.
