Are you kidding? It is a monopolized cheap labor source for getting rich for abusive local authorities. Those abusive local authorities are going to blow back big time this time.

So are the wealthy and corporations in the US going to stop using illegals for low paid slave labor? Are they going to stop people in the US from working three people’s jobs since they laid off workers for more profits and shifted the work to other employees? Is the US going to stop work schedule tricks so overtime is not paid?

Xi is really treading on a dangerous line this time as the whole communist system itself hinges on the “security apparatus”, not just “whether China reforms the system” as the article stated. Without the abolishing the absolute power of the security apparatus, China risks Xi’s intended reform for a violent revolution. However, if the absolute power is taken away and the rule of law is established, without intimidation of the security apparatus people would speak out and the outcome for the communist rule would be very easy to predict. Xi probably would reduce the power of police a bit to avoid the social flash point. To completely overhaul the security of its rule? Noway.

It was the outgoing PM Wen who first proposed abolition of labor camps 10 years ago and Xi simply implements it for accreditation. Never get the notion that all cheap stuff comes from labor camps other than from sweat and blood of ordinary prison inmates. China created a bad image to name it that way. Had labor camps be called rehabilitation centers, their existence would not be so objectionable.
