Payment by Bank Card to Migrant Workers

North China's Tianjin municipality is adopting new measures to prevent the delay of payments for migrant workers.

Yang Fuyu is a director of Tianjin Labor and Social Security Bureau.

"We developed six types of contracts to define the detailed rights, duties, work hours and vacations for the two sides."

Tianjin also develops a payment system using bank cards.

Each worker will get a bank card before he/ she takes the job, and the salary will be put into the card each month.

Zhao Min is the director of the Construction Industry Management Office under Tianjin Construction Committee.

He says migrant workers should get registered with their identification.

"This means every migrant worker will get registered by signing a work contract and get a bank card. By June this year, 100 percent of the migrant workers in Tianjin will get a bank card."
