A migrant worker… with a blog

A young migrant worker from Hubei province blogs about the migrant urban experience from the perspective of the disrespected:

Many people don’t believe that I’m a migrant worker. A few people have even taken to calling me names. Someone said: “Don’t fear bullies and don’t fear landlords. Only fear an educated migrant worker 不怕地主和恶霸,就怕民工有文化.” As far as they know, migrant workers are supposed to be ignorant and easy to control . . . But we migrant workers shouldn’t be ashamed of ourselves. We should be proud of who we are.
