Migrant Workers Trek To Xinjiang To Pick Cotton

SHIHEZI, XINJIANG - OCTOBER 15: Migrant workers pick cotton in the fields October 15, 2005 in Shihezi city of Xinjiang province, China. Every year, thousands of farmers from inland provinces, including Central China's Henan, East China's Anhui, Jiangsu and Shandong provinces, travel to Xinjiang for the cotton harvest season when a large number of temporary cotton pickers are needed. Cotton workers can often earn RMB 2,500 ($320) for the whole harvest season, which covers a period of two or three months. (Photo by Guang Niu/Getty Images)
