SHANGHAI — No resolution has been reached between one of the world’s largest shoe manufacturers and tens of thousands of workers who are on strike over a benefit dispute at the company’s factories in the southern province of Guangdong.
The Taiwanese-owned Yue Yuen Holdings Ltd., which makes shoes for Nike and Adidas along with numerous other global brands, has not responded to interview requests regarding a strike among employees that began in early April and has since intensified into a widespread protest involving at least 30,000 workers in Dongguan, a manufacturing epicenter in southern China. Worker rights groups have said the strike is one of the largest in recent history in the country.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
