An Anhui construction company made the handing over of year-end salaries almost ceremonial, building a giant mountain of money out of huge stacks of 100 yuan notes.
According to NetEase, as workers queued up to collect their salaries on Friday their faces lit up as they saw the giant wall of money which had been laid out before them.
The migrant workers told reporters how happy they were to be paid and what they hoped to spend it on. Wang Yuefang and Gao Xiufang said that they were looking forward to returning to their hometown with the money and celebrating Chinese New Year in style.
