From CLB:

On February 1, 2005, some 2,000 employees at the Dazhou Cotton Textile Factory in Sichuan went on strike to demand they be laid off with a living allowance paid by the factory. The factory had entered bankruptcy proceedings and was temporarily leased to a private operator. According to the strikers, the contractor had embezzled their wages and so they were only able to take home around 300 yuan each month. As such, it was better to be laid-off and seek employment elsewhere.
