 :thankyousign: Once again Lindi ,you will have to visit me and give me a days tuition on how to do this ,its no good just telling me Im such a dumbo I need to be shown several times before it might sink in .Then I would have to keep doing a post nearly every day otherwise I would forget.
By the way sorry for the jerking going from the branch to the main line this was caused by my mates shaky hand it was all done on the one controller so normally goes much smoother .

Chinese New Year just ended on Sunday, and from my days running factories out there real business wont start for another week or so yet.  Tho whole damn place just shuts for the best of four weeks and everyone goes home.

I suspect Dave will update us around Easter @DJM Dave even just to confirm everything is progressing as planned.

I thought Chinese New Year was February 16th - at least I went to a new year party that night.  The holiday may be for 4 or 6 days.  I hope they are all back at work by now!

Over here yes, but in China its like the French all going on holiday for most of August, its their big and their only annual holiday and most of the Chinese working population go home to see their families.  That's also why the Communist Party Congress is currently taking place

Employment contracts particularly for factory workers are renewed so you don't even know if your workforce will come back after the holidays.  We used to use these weeks for factory upgrades, new equipment installation and staff training, particularly new staff.

Hopefully things have improved since those days and the workers are now on long-term contracts and earning a decent wage.

Best regards,


Joe

In many areas yes - but it doesn't change the Chinese New Year. It's when lots of employees on long term contracts change employer often at very short notice.
