Yu dresses in his uniform, a baseball hat, light yellow shirt, red tie, and a pair of brown trousers despite the unforgiving heat.

“Summer time is always the hardest,” he said and at the end of the day the uniform is often soaking wet from his sweat.

Yu works 12 hours a day, in two shifts, and earns about 2,000 yuan ($323) a month.

“I am satisfied with my income,” said the former locksmith.

“I prefer working as a locksmith but I moved here to be with my girl.”

Yu will drink six bottles of water every day.
