9. Back to Piraeus: Precarity for All!

some interesting thoughts on China's role in all of this, which I didn't quite feel like typing out fully. in sum: the ECB and EC implicitly blame China for poor working conditions, but it's really about labour regimes, and other European companies would do similarly if they felt they must to compete (so nothing to do with China in particular)

14. Struggles and Grassroots Organizing in an Extended European Choke Point

in Italy. migrant labour is a major factor here - migrants 10.3% of all employees, and in Northern Italy's logistics sector, they're 80% in many warehouses (mostly from Africa, Eastern/Southeastern Asia)
