Workers rest in the living quarters of a construction company in the fast-growing Pudong area of Shanghai, China. (From the coverage of welder Huang Neng in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Living quarters and food services are on site, and at least 10 workers share one room. In China, migrant laborers often live directly on the job-site grounds of big construction projects and work 12-hour shifts, seven days a week. Alcohol is only tolerated in the company cafeteria after dinner.
