Writer Ken Picard brought this to my attention. Ken wrote a fantastic story last week about Chinese restaurant workers in Essex Junction. Apparently someone started a blog to talk about the issues in the story.
It's called Chu? Shì Yuán. The anonymous blogger says the name means "cafeteria worker" or "cook."
Apparently the blogger is not Chinese, but thinks that he? she? has something to add to the discussion. Why? Says the blogger:
Althoughthis blog will focus on the plight of the Chinese restaurant workers inEssex Junction, Vermont, the ideas presented are wider in scope andapplicable to other groups such as migrant workers who work seasonallyon farms. Lessons learned here will be open for all to see.
