A protest involving around 1,000 migrant workers broke out on Tuesday in Zhejiang province, after an employer allegedly killed a migrant worker, Reuters reported. Yang Zhi, a 19-year-old migrant worker, was said to have been killed by his employer, Xu Qiyin, over a salary dispute in Rui’an city, near Wenzhou. State media said that workers rushed a nearby government office building and damaged cars with stones and bricks on the news. The protest, which began in the morning, was apparently over before midday, when Xu was detained and the family of the decreased received around US$47,300 in compensation. Beijing does not release official statistics on the number of protests and riots around the country, but government-back studies estimate that around 90,000 “mass incidents” occur every year.
