  • Janitors, security guards march for better wages
Around 70 security guards and janitors marched from Wan Chai to government headquarters in Tamar, demanding that the three Chief Executive candidates address their low wages and long working hours.

Their spokesperson, Mung Siu-tat, said none of the CE candidates’ platforms have given attention to their needs nor have they engaged them in dialogue.

The protesters called for an increase in the minimum wage and immediate legislation on standard working hours.

They say they're often exploited by their employers, and made to work long hours without compensation.

The marchers included representatives from the Hong Kong Buildings Management and Security Workers General Union and the Cleaning Service Industry Workers Union.
