...Ford, General Motors and Hyundai, among others, have also struggled with labor unrest in India.

Not just Japan.

All the "first world" nations taking advantage of low wadges in india, how could suzuki not know about unrest on the scale that could lead to this sort of thing? Ohhhh thats right, its a Japanese company. Never mind.

Seriously tho, this will only get worse. China is due for a popular uprising too. So are Pakistan and south asian countries.

Where oh where will the big corporations turn to when people over there actually start to demand decent wadges?

Another nail in Jcoffin.

Ah Suzuki... There are very good reasons they couldn't collaborate with a proper, modern, automotive manufacturer such as Volkswagen. I can't dare think about the idiocy of many Japanese managers wasting resources there. I'm sure they internal working style hasn't changed much in the past 50 years.

I guess Indian workers aren't so keen on the vaunted Japanese management style, eh. This merger has been plagued by discontent and unrest for many years.
