 Li Keqiang: Legislative Regulations Against Malicious Pay Arrears

On the morning of March 15, after the closing of the second session of the 13th National Peoples Congress, Premier Li Keqiang of the State Council met with Chinese and foreign journalists in the Golden Hall on the third floor of the Great Hall of the People.

Li Keqiang made special mention of migrant workers when answering questions.

He said that there are now more than 280 million migrant workers in China, who are the main force in many industries. Speaking of this, I remember visiting a city two years ago, and I still have an impression that can not be forgotten.

He said that a migrant worker was about my age. He said that his children had been admitted to a key university, and he needed to spend money to make him feel at ease and learn well. We should treat migrant workers kindly and ensure that they get what they deserve.

He said that the problem of wage arrears occurs from time to time. Legislation and regulations should be enacted to resolutely crack down on malicious wage arrears and ensure that the legitimate rights and interests of migrant workers must be guaranteed. It is necessary to see the hope of countless families behind them.
