Global Voices Online » China: Pros more trustworthy than government officials

Global Voices Online » China: Pros more trustworthy than government officials: "A startling result of an online survey of more than 3,376 people published by Insight China magazine reveals that China's prostitutes are considered by some to be more trustworthy than its politicians, teachers and scientists!

The survey found that 7.9% of the respondents considered sex workers trustworthy, placing them third behind farmers and religious workers. A post on China Daily website says a result like this is surprising and embarrassing at the same time. The article analyzes the social background and reasons which lie behind the sex workers' unexpected prominence on this list of honor and concludes that it reflects the government's indifference to, if not disregard of, citizens."

Say it isn't so!

Really?

That's just in China, you think?

Hmmm...
