Protesting steelworkers beat manager to death

Tonghua employees attacked Jianlong's general manager, Chen Guojun, during the protest and beat him to death, the centre said.

Workers were angry that Mr Chen was paid about 3 million yuan ($538,500) last year, while some retirees received as little as 200 yuan a month, the centre said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While tragic in its outcome, this episode demonstrates very clearly that there is a point in the human psyche which snaps after experiencing continued grueling unfairness and economic hardship.

Politicians around the world, kindly take note.
