Shashi Tharoor on the diplomatic confrontation with the US:
Tharoor actually makes a salient point that India probably isn't the only country not paying diplomat's assistants less than minimum wage. In which case, why single out India for prosecution? What about all the other developing countries with diplomats in NYC?
It might be useful for India to enjoin other developing countries to jointly engage in collective bargaining with the US on how this particular aspect of its visa laws are to be handled, and how their diplomats are to be treated. Otherwise, next time it could be any one of them suffering a similar fate.
