A Day in the Life of a Beijing 'Black Guard'
(Beijing) – After receiving his wages late, a 30-year-old we'll call Wang Jie decided to change professions.
On March 7, he pressed a fingerprint onto a receipt that read: "Today I have received settlement of the 12,000 yuan in wages owed to me by Mr. Shao."
"Actually it was short by over 1,000 yuan," said Wang, flipping through a notepad in which he recorded details of more than 40 trips he made between Beijing and Guangdong Province, including dates, addresses and reimbursement figures.
