Monkey Business

Friend and colleague Chris MacDonald of the Business Ethics Blog, is not monkeying around (alright, enough with puns, but I couldn't resist) -- he has provoked a firestorm of discussion about animal rights in his recent postings about a story on monkey waiters in Japan.

The video and news story indicates that the 'monkeys are only allowed to work two hours a day, which is not bad, even if they are only being paid peanuts.'

Fodder for discussion in your bioethics class!
