This is work in its most basic sense : a means of survival. China offers only a rudimentary package of social services ; millions have to devise their own way of keeping their head above water, even in China's economic miracle. But it's not really about the deprivation. Many of the scavengers are far from pathetic. These are people with an aim, an objective in perfect harmony with the highly affluent society in which they scavenge for a living.

Fragment of "The Land of Boundless Ambition" by Hans Moleman.
