Interactive Labor Contention China Map

This interactive map of China catalogs labor unrest and offers a quantitative view into the geography and grievance base of labor rights resistance.

The good folks down at China Labour Bulletin have been working hard to produce an interactive map updated and full of useful information for tracking and understanding labor contention in China. The map goes back to 1 March 2013 and covers collective action ranging from Taxi and Shipping Industry Strikes to Wage Arrears and categorizes them further by noting those that are either majority male or majority female. For a solid overview of labor unrest in China it is a fundamental starting point.
