Product Details

A Better Life For The Workers (I) was originally an internal training manual for activists working with and educating factory workers in Shenzhen, developed by Hong Kong-based NGO Worker Empowerment throughout the early 2000s. More widely published in Chinese in 2013, the manual describes and analyzes the psychological, political, and legal issues shaping industrial work life in modern China. This book is a re-publication of the original Chinese version alongside a 2021 English translation, designed by Liu to reflect themes of hiding in plain sight, and dissolving visibility. These themes speak to the fate of the labor activists and NGOs, increasingly dire since 2019.
