Portraits of Chinese Workers
Li Chunying, 34, from Shaoyang, Hunan
Li Chunying started working at a toy factory when she was just 16. She now works as a line manager at Shenzhen Guangke and looks forward to her day off, when she can spend time shopping with friends or eating in the restaurants that serve food from their native Hunan. "When was I happiest? I don't know. There were so many times here that I've been happy," she says. Still, she longs for home, and would go back with her husband and two daughters if she could only be assured of finding a job.
