Hong Kong Citizens Are Living in Cages… Literally

Hong Kong Citizens Are Living in Cages… Literally

Don't forget, we had huge numbers of 'tin shacks' shanty town also... guess they were the 'luckier' type of people..

But in general, people are much more 'driven' to earn and strive, where the 'benefit culture' was unheard of. Which could have been part of the reason for the Hong Kong success.

Sadly, now with the advent of new arrivals from China and due to better benefits (& afraid of losing out) more HK Chinese are now receiving 'benefits'..

Lets hope it does not become another UK, where it might means being a single mum with several kids means working would make her family poorer!

Very sad situation indeed.
