Migrant workers are happier and more satisfied with their life than last year, but they still constantly feel lonely, isolated and looked down upon, according to a survey jointly released by Renmin University of China and job.gzh.com, a job hunting website for migrant workers.
The survey polled 2,011 migrant workers in 20 cities among the website's 7.2 million registered users.
Compared with the survey's results last year, migrant workers are happier with their living standards, but the level of interpersonal relationships, social participation and status has dropped, the report stated.

"Life is really hard if I don't work away from home," Yue said.
