Chinese organ blasts in on competitive wages

Chinese government-controlled newspaper criticized the existing national wage system and called for salaries to be linked to output to boost industrial efficiency.

The Workers Daily, organ of the state-controlled trade unions, said the existing system paid workers the same for whatever they did, whatever their technical standards and whether or not their company was successful or failing. ''This kind of system does not encourage the advanced, but rewards the backward, '' the newspaper said in a front-page editorial. ''It does not encourage hard work, but rewards idleness.''
