From the Paper:

"This is not to say that these are jobs that American workers would love to have. They continue to be repetitive, boring jobs that pay an average of five dollars a day including overtime. Even as conditions have improved in these factories, the Chinese government has passed laws that have made it more difficult for Nike to do business in China. Recently, the company has had to deal with charges that it required employees to work overtime hours that exceeded maximums set by both the company and local laws. Still, workers continue to flood in from the countryside for a chance to work sixty-hour, six-day work weeks at the company's many factories in China."
