土耳其总理称,将继续支持对叙利亚的制裁计划
时间:2011-10-04,土耳其总理埃尔多安表示,俄罗斯和中国在联合国安理会,就叙利亚问题的决议草案进行表决时,投了反对票;
土耳其和其他国家,将继续支持制裁叙利亚的计划。
联合国安理会,4日就法国、英国等提交的叙利亚问题决议草案进行表决。俄罗斯、中国反对;印度、南非、巴西、黎巴嫩弃权;法国、英国、德国、葡萄牙、美国等赞成;决议草案未能获得通过。
埃尔多安,在4日的一次讲话中,表示,决议草案未获通过,不会影响土耳其以及欧盟国家对叙利亚进行制裁。
土耳其目前,已经对叙利亚采取了武器禁运。总理埃尔多安预计:将在本周晚些时候,宣布对叙利亚的新制裁措施。

土耳其近50年来,一直在叩响欧洲的大门,先是欧共体,然后,是欧盟。第一份申请,是在1963年递交的,但那时,谈及加入欧共体,显得有些唐突,因为,就在之前的两年,土耳其通过政变上台的军人政府,绞死了民选总理。

猜测得到证实:欧洲不会接纳土耳其。土耳其的穆斯林太多。这个有着8000万人口的穆斯林国家,不可能加入现代欧盟,却不使其发生重大变化。

法国总统萨科齐率先表示:不能接纳土耳其。德国总理默克尔前不久,也公开表示了这一点,此前,鉴于同土耳其的特殊关系,德国一直保持着非常灵活的立场。
土耳其已明白,它不可能成为欧盟的一员了。

三成英国人年入不足1.5万镑, 近半华人活在贫困线,2011-10-07

伦敦,10月9日,今天,此间出版的英国《 华商报》报道,近日,有调查显示,英国人的生活水平,正急剧下降。三成英国人,生活在贫困线之下,华人的贫困人数更高。为此,英国政府决定:自今年10月起,提高最低工资标准,90万民众,可望从中得益,但工会认为:这是杯水车薪,解决不了根本的贫困。

  最低工资,赶不上物价上涨

  1999年,英国工党政府上台后不久,实施最低工资标准。当时的最低工资,是每小时3.6镑,以后,每年调整一次。

今年9月29日,英国劳工部宣布:接受薪酬评定委员会的推荐,自今年10月起,将21岁以上成人的最低工资,提高到每小时6.08镑;18,至20岁的最低工资,升到4.98镑;16,至17岁的,涨到3.68镑,学徒的时薪,从10月起,调整为2.60镑。

  英国工会联盟发表声明,对政府提高最低工资标准,表示欢迎,但认为:加薪的幅度太小。工会表示,面对日益高涨的食品、燃料等物价,每小时工资,增加十几分,并不能缓解民众的生活压力。尽管如此,这次调高最低薪酬,至少有90万低收入人士能获益。工会负责人呼吁,政府应该将最低工资,提高到每小时8镑,这样,才能大量减少贫困人口。

  三成民众,生活在贫困线下

  根据英国著名研究机构Joseph Rowntree Foundation最近作的调查显示,英国目前,有30%的工薪阶层,生活在最低工资的生活线上。这30%民众的平均税前年收入,是14400镑。扣除收入所得税和国民保险税,每个月的实际收入,不到一千镑。如果家中还有子女,那就是绝对贫困。

  出生在英国、属香港第二代移民的麦先生:他目前,在伦敦一家小酒店做前台,领的,就是最低工资。每月,税后收入980镑,固定支出700镑,包括,房租360镑(一间10平米的房间),房屋税30镑,水电煤90镑,食品120镑,地铁票120镑。剩下的,不到250镑,还要抽烟、喝酒,必要的社交,每月,要去曼城,看父母等等。

  麦先生说:“生活在伦敦,说起来很好听,实际上,有很多人,生活在贫困中,我周围的朋友、邻居、同事、同学,都差不多。”

  餐饮超市,名列收入最低阶层

  调查显示,拥有最多生活在贫困线民众的行业,有:餐饮、酒店、旅行社、超市、家政等。英国的快餐店、咖啡店和酒店的清洁员工,是收入最低的阶层,很多快餐店、咖啡店,长期雇佣16-20岁的青年,甚至学徒。

  一位曾在三家快餐烤鸡店打过工的中国留学生:店家绝对遵守法律,员工的薪水不会低于法定工资要求,但是,要想加薪,哪怕要一分钱,都很困难。快餐业的经理十分清楚,目前,失业者中,25岁的青年人,占了四分之一,每家快餐店,都有几十人,甚至上百人,等着要来上班。统计显示,印度人开的杂货店,员工的薪水,普遍较低。

  华人员工收入更糟

  英国华人的收入情况,比其它民族相比,可能更加糟糕。从中餐馆、外卖店,到中药店,从华人超市、杂货店,到旅行社,低收入情形,十分普遍,长期不变。华人行业中,违反最低工资标准的,比比皆是。

  伦敦和曼城唐人街发现,华人员工年薪15000镑的,非常稀少。曾小姐,曾在三家中医店打工,做前台,她说,她在中药店,工作了6年,从未见过哪个前台的员工薪水高达15,000镑。比较多的,是周薪200-250镑,一年,就是一万出头点,付了房租费、地铁费,再加上吃个饭,几乎所剩无几。吃的,还都是些粗茶淡饭,奢侈高档品,是想都不敢想。

  2008年金融危机后,英国经济一直低迷,上个月,世界银行预计:英国明,后年的经济成长率,不到1%。最近,欧元区债务重重,美国经济徘徊不前,全球经济乌云密布。大部分专家表示:都不看好世界经济在短期内有所缓和,与此同时,物价飞涨,食品、燃料等价格,每半年,以百分之十几,在上扬。可以预期:在未来一到二年,英国民众的生活水准,难有改善的机会,生活在贫困线的英国华人,将继续在艰难中,煎熬下去。

Speculation was confirmed: that Europe will not accept Turkey. Turkey’s Muslim too. With 80 million people in this Muslim country, can join the modern European Union, does not make significant changes.

Three percent annual income of less than 1.5 British pounds, nearly half of Chinese live below the poverty line ,2011 -10-07

London, October 9, today, published in the British here, “China Daily” reported recently, a survey, the British standard of living is rapidly declining. Three percent British, living below the poverty line, a higher number of poor Chinese. To this end, the British government decided: since October of this year, raising the minimum wage, 90 million people, is expected to benefit, but the union said: This is a drop in the bucket, not solve the underlying poverty.

Minimum wage, keep up with rising prices

In 1999, the British Labour government came to power shortly after the implementation of the minimum wage. At that time the minimum wage, 3.6 pounds per hour, after adjusted once a year.

September 29, the Labor Department announced that the United Kingdom: Assessment Committee’s recommendation to accept pay from October onwards, adults over 21 years the minimum wage increased to £ 6.08 per hour; 18 to 20-year-old minimum wage or to 4.98 pounds; 16 to 17 years old, rose to 3.68 pounds, when the apprentice’s salary from October, adjusted to 2.60 pounds.

British Trade Unions issued a statement on the government to raise the minimum wage, welcomed, but that: too small pay rise. Union, faced with rising food and fuel prices, hourly wages, increased more than ten minutes, and can not ease the pressure on people’s lives. Nevertheless, the increase in minimum pay, at least 90 million low-income people can benefit. Trade union leader called on the government should be the minimum wage increased to £ 8 per hour, so in order to significantly reduce poverty.

Three percent of people living below the poverty line

According to British research firm recently for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation survey, Britain, 30 percent of working-class, living the life line in the minimum wage. This 30% average pre-tax annual income of the people, is 14400 pounds. Deducting income tax and national insurance tax, real income per month, less than 1,000 pounds. If there are children at home, that is absolute poverty.

Born in England, is Hong Kong’s second-generation immigrants, Mr. Michael: He is currently in London to do a small hotel front, collar, is the minimum wage. Monthly, after-tax income of 980 pounds, 700 pounds fixed expenses, including rent and 360 pounds (a 10 square meter room), house tax 30 pounds, 90 pounds water, electricity, food and 120 pounds, 120 pounds subway ticket. The remaining, less than 250 pounds, but also smoking, drinking, the necessary social, monthly, go to Manchester City, to see their parents and so on.

Mr Mak said: “Living in London, said it sound good, in fact, there are many people who live in poverty, around my friends, neighbors, colleagues, classmates, are similar.”

Food supermarket, among the lowest income class

Survey, the largest number of people living below the poverty line industry, there are: restaurants, hotels, travel agencies, supermarkets, home economics and so on. Britain’s fast-food restaurants, coffee shops and hotel cleaning staff, is the lowest income class, a lot of fast food shops, cafes, long-term employment of young people aged 16-20, or even an apprentice.

Who has played in three fast-food chicken shop workers in Chinese students: the store is absolutely obey the law, not the salaries of employees wages below the statutory requirements, but, in order to pay, even to a penny, very difficult. Fast-food industry managers is very clear, at present, the unemployed, the 25-year-old young people, accounting for a quarter, every fast food restaurant, there are dozens, even hundreds of people, waiting to come to work. Statistics show that the Indians opened the grocery store, staff salaries, is generally low.

Worse, the Chinese employees income

British Chinese income, than any other nation than likely worse. From restaurants, takeaways, to the pharmacy, from the Chinese supermarkets, grocery stores, to travel, low-income situation, very common, long-term change. Chinese industry, in violation of minimum wage, everywhere.

Chinatown in London and Manchester found that Chinese employees annual salary of 15,000 pounds, is very scarce. Ms. Tseng, Chinese medicine shop has three employees, to do front, she said, she was in the pharmacy, worked for six years, never seen a front desk employee salaries up to 15,000 pounds. More, is the weekly 200-250 pounds a year, his early points is ten thousand, to pay the rent fee, subway fee, plus dinner, almost nothing left. Eat, but also are more bread and water, high-end luxury goods, is unthinkable.

2008 financial crisis, the British economy has remained sluggish last month, the World Bank is expected to: United Kingdom states that year after the economic growth rate, less than 1%. Recently, the euro zone debt heavy, stagnant U.S. economy, global economic dark clouds. Most experts say: do not optimistic about the global economy eased in the short term, at the same time, rising prices, food, fuel prices, every six months to ten per cent, on the rise. Can be expected: in the next one to two years, the British people’s living standards, it is difficult to improve the opportunity to live under the poverty line of British Chinese, will continue in the difficult, the suffering continues.
