From NetEast BBS: By 不知道分子,

Tens of thousands of migrant peasant workers are full of hope, with a good heart, constantly going into the city, selling out themselves to the unlimited consumption of low-cost labor force. They are selling their physical strength, their health and their time, and how many of them will really fulfill their wishes?

Everyone has different lives. When revert people back to their most basic state, then will they realize what men’s values truly are. These migrant workers are like machines equipped with a human heart, do not need to be lubricated. Their muscles are the engine.

They work all day and all night and finally exhausted, all they have left are their sub-consciousness. When a person completely sinks to become a low-coast labor tool, so called dignity is nowhere to be found.

The relationships between human beings are sometimes worse than relationships between human and animals. However, the lives they are staying alive for are just like the farm animals’… The lives of peasant workers in the city are full of sorrow, thought provoking!

They do not have money to go home by public transportation. They had no choice but to climb into truck for a ride without being seen, but it is very dangerous.
