Say the old workmates called him almost every day for money, he was almost driven crazy.

Many migrant workers said, their basic salary is calculated on a daily basis, day to day money, not doing it will be out of money. At the site, there is strength in order to earn more, not physical, they earn less. In many cases, you want to eat meat and buy nutritional supplements to add strength.

This proven approach, a consensus was already reached among elderly migrant workers. "Don't eat meat, where hard work?! "Migrant worker Zou Bozheng said that strength, we all work hard.

Migrant workers from Inner Mongolia Han Guifen said developers promised housing caps later cashed all her money.
