they were injured during working at the Fuyao Glass in China. In Fuyao Glass America, the documentary also shows us that lots of employees were getting hurt, and one of the employees even said, “safety doesn’t pay our bills.” However, in term of difference, Fuyao Glass America is more equipped with higher quality machines, so the employees are safer. In addition, managers of Fuyao Glass America seem to be more aware of safety standards than the ones in Fuyao Glass China. 8. Compare/contrast labor standards in Fuyao Glass’s factory in China and the United State Answer: in term of similarly, both Fuyao Glass American (FGA) and Fuyao Glass China (FGC) have quite low labor standards. However, the difference is that Fuyao Glass China definitely have lower labor standard. This is because firstly, American labors in FGA get paid 2 dollars extra/hour (their wage increased), whereas for Chinese labors in FGC, their wages did not increase as shown in the documentary. Also, Chinese workers only have 1 to 2 days off whereas American have 8. American workers also have a maximum number of hours they are allowed to work per week whereas the Chinese workers seem to don’t have one as the documentary didn’t say. Also, the standards for Chinese labors in FGC is to produce as many glasses as possible while that is not the same case for American labors in FGA. Thus, it seems like the labors in FGA have much less pressure than Chinese labors in FGC because they don’t have requiring quantity to meet. However, American still have low labor standards. For example, their lunch area was removed, and it got replaced with a TV showing Chinese children dancing and singing. There was no lunch area for American labor at FGA to eat and have break, and in fact, it was removed to make a production space. Also, the wage is low – $12.84. The employees even said, “the condition is not favorable”. 9. What is the main purpose of the labor union? Why do (some) employees want it and others do not? Answer: the main purpose of the labor union is to protect labor’s right. They are created to ensure that labors are getting appropriate paid and their working conditions are safe and healthy. Some employees want it because they believe that labor union makes their voice stand out better and they are hungry for higher wages and better working conditions. Also, they believe that some organizations don’t care about employee’s opinions, and therefore, they need labor union to protect their rights and make their opinion heard-able. However, managers and the CEO don’t want labor union because according to the CEO, he believes that labor union causes production to become unproductive and ineffective. Also, another reason that the CEOs doesn’t want labor union because he said he doesn’t want Fuyao to be controlled by the union. This might be

because Chinese really emphasizes hierarchy, and it is reasonable for them to think that why they should listen to their employees when they are at higher ranking compared to the employee’s. Lastly, some employees don’t want labor union simply because they don’t want to risk losing their job when joining the labor union. 10. What were some of the cultural stereotypes that people had about each other? a. The Chinese side about the Americans Answer: Chinese think Americans live a superior life. Chinese also thinks that they are better than American in terms of working skills. They believe that America is very free, and they are allowed to do whatever they want as long as it is not illegal. Also, some Chinese said the Americans have fat fingers. The CEO

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
