The five migrant workers, whose salaries had been defaulted by various companies after working at several construction sites in Zhangjiakou of Hebei province, came to Beijing in order to raise public awareness and get help, local media reported. The Chinese characters on the papers read, "Give me back my hard-earned money." Reuters/Stringer
