Location: Yichang City, Hubei Province
A local developer in Yichang City, Hubei Province, hired migrant workers through Qingyu Labor Staffing Company to build a new residential community. When workers demand payment of unpaid wages, the staffing company hired thugs to beat them with iron rods.
Man in the background: When we demand unpaid wages, Qingyu Labor Staffing Company confronts us with iron rods! They are beating us, workers. Again, it’s Qingyu Labor Staffing. They use iron rods to attack migrant workers from rural areas. All migrant workers in China from the countryside, pay attention to this! We are asking for payment of unpaid wages, and they are going to beat us with the rods. See, they beat one of our guys. He was injured. This is Qingyu Labor Staffing Company.
Others: They are attacking people! Call 110 (Police line).
Man in the background: I am still standing here if you want to come to get me!
