The ministry and other institutions have initiated a legal assistance campaign, sending lawyers, grassroots-level legal workers and legal assistance volunteers to factories and communities to provide legal counseling services to migrant workers, according to a press conference Thursday.

Migrant workers can seek help via a hotline or at public legal service centers that have green channels for claiming arrears.

As of Dec. 31, 2019, a legal service website launched by the ministry in May has helped migrant workers claim more than 27 million yuan (3.88 million US dollars) in unpaid wages.

In the first half of this year, tens of millions of yuan in wage arrears have been returned to migrant workers through the help of the ministry, according to the press conference.
