The Wider Image: Frustration of surviving pricey Hong Kong stirs protest anger
Native Hong Kong resident Ruka Tong, 21, a student, poses for a picture in her bedroom of her family's apartment in Hong Kong, China June 28, 2019. Tong shares her 11 sq meter room with two of her sisters. Their Parents live in the same apartment. Until last year, the family of five lived in a 28 sq meter room. "You see me always at work to earn more money to buy a flat. I work seven days a week in five jobs. One office job and four jobs giving tutorial classes. Just 2-3 hours resting time. I need to earn more money to save for academia and for my family," Tong said. "There are so many pressures in Hong Kong, price pressure, academic pressure.. I don't want the future generation to face this problem." REUTERS/Thomas Peter SEARCH "YOUNG HK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
