Agents of law should protect migrant workers

China Daily | Updated: 2015-08-20 07:43

A MIGRANT WORKER, who requested the wages he hadn't been paid so he could treat his sick father, was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after losing consciousness while gulping down cheap but strong spirit, because his boss promised to give him 20 yuan ($3.3) for each cup he drank. The boss left before the worker lost consciousness, and the worker was taken to hospital by a passer-by. Comments:

The boss is suspected of breaking the law, because he must realize that drinking that much strong spirit might be harmful. What if the worker died on road side? The migrant worker should take the boss to court.
