China - Guangdong - Dongguan - A Former Smart Union Employee

Wei Shun Ying, a 46 year old former employee of Smart Union, sits in her apartment wearing her former Smart Union uniform in Dongguan, China. Wei Shun Ying worked for Smart Union for eight years before being laid off on October 15, she doesn't think she can find another job because "factories don't want you if you are over 30". Dongguan has been hard hit the last few months as the economies of rich countries falter. Export demand has been reduced and companies that were operating on the margins have folded leaving thousands of migrant workers with tough choices.
