New blog spawned by Chinese restaurant worker story

Posted By on Mon, Jun 4, 2007 at 10:12 AM

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:

  1. I am a naturalized citizen of the USA.
  2. Myfamily had a business that employed some persons with Green Cards whohad little or no English skills. Some of them found life in the USA sounpleasant, they moved back to their home country. Others adapted tolife here.
  3. I have some limited understanding of the Chinese culture and people, though I am not Chinese myself.

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.

Interesting.
