Mr. Yang, a 35 year old native of Guizhou province at his home in Dongguan, China. Mr. Yang worked for Smart Union for just under a year before being laid off went the company went bankrupt on October 15. Mr. Yang will stay in Dongguan because he has heard a rumor that the government will reopen Smart Union and everyone will get their jobs back. He stays home waiting. 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.
