“[We are treated] like ants… not humans. If I had known of the dangers and hazards of pneumatic drilling, I would never have done the work, no matter how poor I was,” said Wang Zhaogang, who now faces a slow, painful death thanks to pneumatic drilling work he did to help build Shenzhen into the tech metropolis it is today.
