EDITORIAL: Fisheries deserve no exemptions

Su and other officials’ reasoning that fishers could work with their employers on “appropriate working times and days off” not only flies in the face of reality, but ignores the biased power structure that puts migrants at the mercy of duplicitous labor brokerages and employers.
