The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Worker - #104


Some workers here have been here for years, in fact decades, and only see their families once at the very most per year.

That must be tough in so many ways.

actually in China, there are lots of the similar workers. I mean those workers just left their hometown and work in another place for the whole year, only meet their families during the Spring festival.
We call them "farmer workers". A very special phenomenon in China, also a very big social problem here.
very great photo!!

We had the same thing for years in France until the French govt introduced a family reunion scheme whereby the families could come to France too. Now they complain about immigration issues.
Things are so complex !
