Batches of 50 to 100 Uighur workers are being advertised on the Chinese internet
Beijing calls it “the lie of the century”, but Chinese websites have adverts for Uighur labour, in batches of 50 to 100 people.
Uighur people from Xinjiang working in other parts of China are subject to “political” checks and work under strict “half-military” style management, according to new evidence discovered by Sky News.
The Xinjiang government runs an official “labour transfer programme”, according to its 2019 Five Year Plan, “so as to provide more employment opportunities for the surplus rural labour force”.
Workers are “transferred to employment” in other provinces of China.
