As the year's end approaches, more and more migrant workers gather to claim unpaid salaries from their bosses. In some cases however it can be extremely difficult, as bosses use bullying tactics to force workers to give up.

Actually, it is a common problem, especially in the construction industry, as companies usually pay migrant workers their salaries at the end of the year, and quite often delay payments to those without formal contracts.
