The latest local twist on Gangnam Style to hit China comes from a group of migrant workers in Wuhan, who performed the horse-riding dance outside a nightclub they had built to protest their unpaid wages, the Guardian reports:
The leader of the dancers, who gave his name only as Mr Lu, told the Wuhan Evening News that in total 40 workers were owed 233,000 yuan (£23,300).
Confrontations over unpaid wages are common in the runup to the lunar new year, often the only time when migrant workers can return home. Many fear they may never be paid if they leave their cities without their wages.
The workers are not the first to press their case by going viral online, following creative protests by migrant laborers in Tianjin who last October filmed a mock press conference using official rhetoric to appeal for unpaid wages, and Yunnan protesters who prominently featured their children in a street demonstration in August.
