Cai Xingju starts her workday at 6:30AM and finishes at 9:00PM. She first peels 50 kilograms of potatoes, then washes the dishes. "When she will get more skilled," says her boss Song Tingxian, "she will distribute meals to the workers." She works with three other migrant women, coming from Anhui and Shandong provinces. Her work is hard and Cai Xingju hopes to adapt quickly to this hard rythm. She dreams about becoming a hairdresser or a tailor.
