Migrant workers make their home under overpass

Workers in the road maintenance crew rest under an overpass in Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province, Dec 23, 2010. The overpass, named Wulidun, lies at the transportation center of Hefei city. More than 20 migrant workers have been living under the bridge since the beginning of 2010, with a roller shutter and cement boards to protect them from the elements. They work eight to nine hours a day and receive an average salary of 50 yuan ($7.54). The oldest man among them is 67 years old. [Photo/Xinhua]
