A first-person account of life as an underage jewellery worker

Editors note: Guangdong Province's Haifeng County is known as the jewellery production centre of China. There, approximately 50,000 tons of semi-precious stones are produced annually. This figure represents around seventy percent of global semi-precious stone production. Most facilities throughout the region employ migrant labour, and child labour is prevalent. Larger factories actually employ recruiters who travel to small villages in other provinces in search of fresh workers. Fees to these recruiters are paid on a per-worker basis, and age is generally not a consideration.
