"Underpay" is a subjective term.

Depends what you mean by 'underpay'...

a) Pay less than the worker should be valued based on his/her skills.

b) Pay less than the contract stipulates.

c) Pay less than the minimum wage.

(b) and (c) are obviously illegal.

(a) is just a rubbish company.

If the poll was "is the sky blue" you would still have 5% say no.

Mind you, those could be in Beijing......
