GUANGZHOU - Local police in South China's Guangdong province have helped migrant workers claim back over 61.92 million yuan (9.7 million US dollars) in unpaid wages during the past 40 days.

Since Dec 15, 2017, Guangdong has initiated a three-month-long action to crack down on unpaid wages.

The provincial public security authorities said Thursday that a total of 80 cases related to unpaid salaries were filed, and 51 of them had been solved. A total of 149 suspects were caught.

Local public security departments in the province have joined hands with other governmental departments looking at the situation of migrant worker wages.

The police have been tracking down fleeing suspects by using the Internet, and more efforts have been put in investigating the assets of suspects.

On Jan. 9, policemen with Zhuhai City forced a construction material company to pay 718,000 yuan of wages owed to 66 migrant workers. On the same day, Guangzhou police, together with Beijing police, caught two suspects in Beijing.
