The main theme of this photo essay is easy to understand- showing Chinese migrant workers ferrying goods around the city on their bicycle. Such huge amounts of goods seems to be impossible for people to carry, but in China, nothing is impossible. Not only flowers, water pipes, furniture or cotton quilts, you may easily find anything that workers carrying beyond your imaginations.
Some people may argue that China is still being a developing country, this type of ferrying pattern is not that astonished at all. However, these photo were taken in the poor provinces, is in Shanghai, where one of the top cities around the world. How could the government ignore such dangerous phenomenon in the city?
These photos not only reminds us the extremely heavy workload and inhuman treats for the migrant workers in the Chinese society, but also raise our attention to the deficiency of Chinese security system for workers. Since the Chinese government spend such huge amount of money on building the prosperity and well-developed images to the other countries, why don’t the government take a closer look at the need of citizens first? People spend their biggest efforts for the Chinese society and help develop the country, there are only two things they could receive: Unreasonably low salary and Zero social insurance from the Chinese government.
