Chinese children injured in knife attack outside primary school
Police say villager is in custody after attack in which 23 people were injured in Chengping as children arrived for classes

A knife-wielding man injured 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China as students were arriving for classes, police say, the latest in a series of attacks at Chinese schools and kindergartens.

The attack in the Henan province village of Chengping happened shortly before 8am local time on Friday, said a police officer from Guangshan county, where the village is located.

. . .

It was not clear how old the injured children were, but Chinese primary school pupils are generally aged between six and 11.

. . .

No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing.

I have a few rhetorical questions about those Damn Unions

When was the last time joining or forming a union led to lower pay and fewer benefits for the workers?

When was the last time decertifying a union led to more pay and greater benefits for the workers?

When was the last time a nonunion employee doing the same job in a particular business made more than a union employee doing the same job?

My answer is . . . NEVER.
