2 bosses held for nonpayment

The owners of two companies have been arrested for refusing to pay a total of 880,000 yuan (US$143,793) as wages to their employees, the Fengxian District People’s Procuratorate said yesterday.

Prosecutors said one suspect, surnamed Huang, was the owner of a garment factory in Fengxian.

He never paid his staff, only handing out 500 yuan and 1,000 yuan every month as living expenses.

There are 39 female workers in his factory and the unpaid wages exceeded 440,000 yuan, prosecutors said.

Huang vanished with the machines one night in April. He picked up a job at a construction site in Changning District. Police caught up with him on August 9 and traced the machines to his hometown in Anhui Province.

The other suspect, surnamed Wang, 46, was the chairman of a steel structure company.

On November 1, 2012, the Fengxian Human Resources and Social Security Bureau reported to police that Wang owed over 440,000 yuan to his 61 employees. He was arrested from a cafe in Pudong on August 2.
