Another comparison

Some here will remember the Vesco battery closedown in Sydney, the plant was moved to Cebu in the Phillippines, the workers there are paid on average
P140 (A$3.58) for an 8 hour day, thats just under 45c per hour.

Just this week we see O'Brian windscreens closed with competition from China which has labour cheaper than the Philippines.

Nice to see you looking after your filipino maid so well, in the P.I the rate is
P2000 a month (A$51.28), you are very generous indeed :-).
