A UK worker has suffered a heart attack after taking a trip to China to work on a packaging factory that shut its doors last month.
The 29-year-old, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Sunday Times: “It was sad.
The whole day was like a nightmare, we didn’t sleep, we were scared to death.
I think it was my first trip overseas since I was in school and I had to do a lot of homework.”
The only thing I can say is I would like to go back to work and try to do my bit to help the people in China who are trying to survive.”
Workers are desperate to get back to the UK after the closure of the plastics factory in Chester on February 6, after more than 150 employees took their jobs.
More than 100 workers from the factory were sent home on Monday, with a further 100 to be brought back by Thursday.
It’s a sad reality, we don’t know what will happen. “
I’m sure we’ll have to find somewhere else to do some work,” the worker said.
“It’s a sad reality, we don’t know what will happen.
It’s just a matter of time before something happens.”
“You’re in China now and you can’t even get a lift to work.
You can’t get a cigarette or anything.
I’m hoping the factories are open again by the end of the week.
What do you think of the factory closing?
