Labor conflicts in China: Typologies and their implications
Labor conflicts in China can be classified into three types: those over legal rights, over interests, and over the pre-reform entitlements. They have relatively distinguishable bases, claims, framing, and patterns of interaction with the government. The typological classification is useful for understanding the developmental trajectory of labor conflict in China. © 2013 by the Regents of the University of California. All rights reserved..
