Gangnam Style Is Back In Headlines, And We’re Actually Okay With The Reason This Time
A group of 40 construction workers took to
looting, rioting, vandalism, mayhem, and Gangnam Style on Monday in Wuhan, Hubei province to protest unpaid wages. Reports are that they’re owed 233,000 yuan from their company. With no other recourse, a man surnamed Lu, the contractor, organized a group Gangnam dance in front of a concert hall. Another protester/dancer said he needs his wages to travel home for Spring Festival and keep his three children in school.
Apologies for being two days late with this, by the way — The Times, Guardian, Global Post, China Daily (linked above) are among the big-name publications already on the story — but we’re really rooting for these guys. The pictures below are from Caixin Online:
