Farm work shared by part-time workers in Baise, China's Guangxi


08:19, April 10, 2012

A part-time worker rakes field at Paolie Village of Pingguo County in Baise City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, April 8, 2012. As a large number of rural laborers in Pingguo County have left their hometown to work and live in cities, the local farm work has to be shared by part-time workers, who are usually paid six yuan (about 1 U.S. dollars) per hour for their labor. Most of the part-time work are done by women whose husbands are farmer-turned workers in urban areas. (Xinhua/Luo Zhiken)
