Workman Diaries

Why do we work so hard and at what price? Amid business disruption, rising costs and wage stagnation, the workhorses in Asia’s big cities (Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Beijing, Tokyo and Guangzhou) works long hours – with many struggling to balance work and family life, and to find personal fulfilment.

Fresh graduates from top universities are disillusioned when they failed to land coveted dream jobs. Middle aged workers hoping to own a piece of property are sandwiched, to take care of the old and to raise the young. And for the elderly workers, a growing number is living in anxiety: they fear retirement as it meant a loss of income to survive.
