    All looks very typical for China. A point of note is that lunch may cost 7RMB but it is free for the employee. The company must provide free lunch but it does not have to be a good lunch. Most factory lunches are horrible and most employees will complain but few will actually buy their own decent lunch even though a good meal can be had for just 10 to 15RMB.
