Descrizione del libro
The Chinese government has legislated some of the most protective workplace laws in the world. But laws on the books are meaningless if workers don't mobilize to protect themselves. This book examines the experiences of aggrieved workers and shows how disenchantment with the legal system drives workers from the courtroom to the streets.
