Did you know that 60% of the world’s Christmas decorations are manufactured in a city in East China?
Yiwu is located in Zhejiang Province, and supplies most of China’s demand for Christmas decorations, as well as Europe and America.
This father and his son are migrant workers from Guizhou. They do 10 hours a day to make 3,000 yuan (about $486) a month, according to Sina News.
The pair produce roughly 5,000 stars a day, and use up to 10 face masks to endure the poor working conditions.
When asked, the son said he didn’t know anything about Christmas, and guessed that it was “foreigner’s new year.”
