From the producers of In Dreamworks. not far away from Yongkang railway station in Zhejiang province, Huang Caigen – who suffered himself a work related injury – rented a garage and transformed it into the office of “Small Fish”, an NGO providing support and legal advice to the city’s workers. Migrant workers from the poorest Chinese regions come daily for advice. Poorly educated and without any particular working skills. They work in the thousands of metal workshops in Yongkang, the center of production of metal hardware in China. Working conditions in Yongkang are among the worst in the country and work related injuries are common. “Small Fish” has become a point of reference for thousands of “small fishes” seeking support and advice from Huang Caigen and his staff.
