How Difficult is it to Implement a “Monthly Pay System” for Migrant Workers?

The issue of wages for migrant workers sparked heated discussions again at the “Two Sessions” held this year. According to The Beijing News, Tan Shuangjian, a deputy to the National People’s Congress, who has been engaged in the construction industry for 27 years, suggested that migrant workers in the construction industry should be paid monthly wages like any other salaried workers. Moreover, relevant government departments should be set up to provide institutional management and supervision over the issue of payment of wages by enterprises, thereby gradually realizing the monthly salary system for migrant workers.
