China is inviting tens of thousands of North Korean guest workers into the country in a deal that will provide a cash infusion to help prop up a teetering regime with little more to export than the drudgery of a desperately poor population.

North Korea is China’s Mexico!
Pretty much sounds like the Obamacare taxes...
Chinese political and historical discussions see a near-future China that includes a few more countries (racial/cultural) and has a position of power in world affairs.
Looks that way! I figure 40,000 "workers" at $2000.00 a year is 80 MILLION dollars going back to communist North Korea. These guest workers will only be allowed to keep $50.00 a month for their work and, no doubt, will have to pay for their own living expenses that probably will include sharing a small apartment with 20 other workers, taking turns sleeping on the floor mats. And doesn't China have a huge population problem itself? Can't they give their own people jobs? Slave labor about sums it up and what will Obama or Hillary have to say about it? I doubt they will have any problems with it and may think it an admirable policy worthy of emulating here!
Q: What do you call a North Korean working for slave labor wages in China?
At the rate things are going, there will probably soon be Americans who would be glad to sign on for a job like that.
I’m wondering what will happen when these kids return to North Korea and they tell their friends “WOW - China looks like a paradise compare to here!”.
When you have nothing, and that includes food, you do what you have to do. At least in China, I assume, they will be fed.
It’s hard for me to undertsand why these people do not revolt.
China better keep those Norks well-separated from its own population. Once they see how Chinese live and are fed, it’s basically game-over for the Chia-dude.
You keep people severely malnourished long enough and most become physically and mentally incapable of mounting a revolt.
China has learned well about exploiting cheap labor from the globalists. China already has a huge population. I wonder if they bother with justifying this by claiming the North Koreans are there to do jobs the Chinese workers and prisoners won’t / can’t do.
They will get paid, just less than the lowest Chinese, with is as low as it goes. This is like our open border policy for the poor of Mexico to come here and work for pay way lower than Americans earn.
Who says they will ever be allowed to return and communicate what they saw?
“Who says they will ever be allowed to return and communicate what they saw? “
Good point, I didn’t think of it. The Chinese would probably prefer they go back, but the Norks may have nothing to do with it.
