Well, the problem is that we are in an International world and our normal ways of operating don't really apply.
The problem is that while it may appear unfair, the Chinese staff are getting a decent salary for their country. If we stick to exact equivalent pay then the Chinese staff will not get as many opportunities. On the other hand, the airlines will favour less qualfied staff chinese staff over better NZ staff because of the pay difference.
The real problem is that a Chinese airline could use all Chinese staff (most with University degrees) pay them much less than the NZ airline and undercut the foriegn airlines.
Change involves pain and we have to endure this pain while working for a better tomorrow.
If the Chinese workers know this fact and still apply for the job, yes.
China is communist. They're not supposed to want money anyway.
i thought such things happen only in india...
Of course its fair. Jeez. Global economy you see.
you'd be surprise for china nationals working in Singapore as mechanics around 3-6 hundred USD/mo. They're taking it and it still is high compared to their salary at home.
