    Sorry Dear John

    I have been to Myannmar ( Burma ) a few times
    when I was with Unocal. ( Recently Redeployed -I guess
    I was no longer of value to the strange Company -
    now working for an Oil Service Company with better
    working conditions, but thats another story)

    Unocal does not used slave labor - well, defacto they
    do, because they pay the employees nothing, if they
    do not work, then the Gov't troops/police will make
    them work. ( They have got schedules you know ) If
    they still don't, they disappear and you never see
    them again. ( I guess they just send them home - yea
    right )

    Like all companies, they will use all
    the countries good benefits ( Cheap - some what
    forced labor ) to make a buck. Yes, they do that in all
    the countries they work in, Myannmar is no different.

    Good Ole Roger, Ling, Willamson and the other idiots
    that run ( badly ) this company know and laugh at
    these circumstances.

    The companies ethic's,
    well, they will use employees out of Singapore, India,
    and Jakarta (British/Aussy/French)employees to run
    these employees because most americans will come over
    here an say this is not right. These TCN's ( Third
    county nationals ) will work for high dollars in this
    shitty system, keep there mouths shut and get the job
    done and smile all the way to the bank, and use the
    shit hole that Unocal puts on them, and never try to
    improve the lives of the nationals.
