In case some of you missed the link on the main blog page. The workers who build Nikon's cameras (D3000, D5000, D90, D300S) as well as some Nikkor lenses and other gear are on strike. I'm not sure if these strikes have completely stopped all production of those products or not?
According to the article Nikon pays its factory workers a whopping 50baht/$1.50USD (an hour?) to build our cameras! They want an increase to 80baht/$2.50USD (an hour?)! I'll throw my support to the factory workers. I hope Nikon gives them what they want. They did an excellent job putting my D70 together :^)
I hope they can work things out. A long strike would not be good if the D90 replacement is or is about to go into production. Regardless, you don't want angry workers building your cameras because then quality control starts to suffer. Just ask canon employees ;^)
