China helps migrant workers retrieve 99% defaulted payment

From the People's Daily:

The Chinese government helped retrieve more than 33 billion yuan (3.99 billion US dollars) of back pay by the end of March, said Hu Xiaoyi, spokesman with the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, in Beijing Thursday.

The amount accounts for 99 percent of the total officially recorded owed payment before 2003, said Hu at a press conference...

The ministry also revoked discriminatory policies restraining farmers from looking for work in urban areas and cut off all the "unreasonable charges" on them for seeking jobs after this Spring Festival, when rural workers swarmed back to cities from homes, Hu said.
