Respecting rights of migrant workers - China Daily

From The China Daily:

The People’s Daily published yesterday a set of statistics that reveal the reality of the country’s large migrant worker population.The growing source of labour consists of 120 million rural workers that contribute more than 530 billion yuan (US$65.4 billion) a year to local economies outside their hometowns.The flow of labour from rural to urban areas has helped many families considerably increase their income.

……To provide lasting and prompt protection for migrant workers, trade unions must assume a bigger role in defending workers’ rights. The legal system should also be enabled to bark at and bite into those who dare to infringe upon migrant workers’ rights.
