Chinese migrant workers live in toilet

Yes, it’s true, living in a public toilet.

Ten Chinese migrant workers are living in a public toilet in the city of Hangzhou, according to local media. They are believed to have been living there for several months, and the toilet is now kitted out with a bed, cooking facilities and a television. One of the women said she could not afford to rent a room or pay normal living expenses.

Local Hangzhou residents are reportedly sympathetic to the plight of the migrant workers and generally avoid using the facilities. But some are still surprised by the sight of the toilets’ new residents. “When I ran inside to use the toilet, I was stunned to see several people sitting around, chatting or doing things,” Mr Du told the newspaper.

One of the migrant workers even said that a friend of hers was a little envious of her, as she could live in the toilets rent-free.

I am jealous too!
