The Wider Image: Frustration of surviving pricey Hong Kong stirs protest anger
Native Hong Kong resident John Wai, 26, an engineer, who lives with his parents and a sister, poses for a picture in his 7 sq meter bedroom of his family's apartment in Hong Kong, China, June 25, 2019. "What makes me angry is that the government allows mainland people to buy those very limited resources of land. The property agencies drive the prices so high that we cannot afford them," Wai said. Two years into his career after graduating from a top Hong Kong university, he feels he doesn't get what he deserves. He puts money aside, pays back his parents and pays his student loan. This doesn't leave him with enough money to get his own apartment. "I'm really considering emigrating. To Singapore or Thailand. The reason is that I'm disappointed about the future of Hong Kong. I can see the Chinese government further suspending our rights." REUTERS/Thomas Peter SEARCH "YOUNG HK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
