Discrimination: Death Compensation Different for City, Countryside

Discrimination- Death Compensation Different for City, Countryside

25-year-old Wang Chaojie died at the beginning of May as he heroically attempted to save a coworker who fell into a river while working on a dyke. After being unable to get answers about his son’s tragic death from the employer, his father was forced to file an official complaint with Bureau for Letters and Calls, and only then was he able to contact the company’s lawyer. The lawyer said that because the man’s son was from the countryside his family would only be able to get around 190,000RMB in compensation, less than half of the more than 400,000RMB the family of his coworker from the city would most likely be awarded.
