Students lose internship opportunities
200 students were sent home yesterday after being promised internship in Shenzhen.
These students were taken to Xili in Nashan District on Saturday by two people but since then the people in question disappeared. They students were offered internship opportunities in a couple of Shenzhen factories before the summer holidays. Some of them paid 130 yuan for transport and also paid 25 yuan a night jsut to stay in hostel in Xili. Those people who promised them internship didn’t charge them fees but some say the factories already paid them money for their internships.
More than 100 students already went home, some were taken to the Shenzhen relief station to be sent home by the Shenzhen public security and civil affairs bureau. The students complained to Maoming labor authorities in hoping that they would be offered more internship opportunities.
