Policies to be Implemented to Help Migrant Workers
Guangdong province will soon implement control measures that will help protect migrant workers’ rights and interests. A policy document was drafted to give strength to social construction plans that are currently being worked out.
Even with stable economic growth of past years, the province still owes a lot of social debt to certain communities with civil and democratic awareness on the rise. Party chief Wang will be meeting with members of his government to discuss the province’s plans on social construction, and hopes to release a policy that will include steps on how to achieve it. He also said that during the years that the province has concentrated on developing economically and have forgotten social construction.
The province social construction was so behind economic progress that they might need to pay more debts than expected. Wang said that they would look into improving public and social services since there are 35 million migrant workers in the province, totaling 35 percent of the population in Guangdong.
The government will also deepen its understanding on how social development works, and find and explore a more suitable approach bases on the needs of the public, refining laws and regulations, strengthening funds and administrative powers that will support social construction.
More measures will be made in the future that will help improve livelihoods, boost non government livelihoods and welfare; create a democratic environment and improve public services.
