Hardship in Hong Kong for China's migrants

New arrivals from the mainland struggle with poverty in this city of contrasts.

    Poverty hits home for more than a third of families that move from mainland China to Hong Kong, a new study has revealed.

    The situation is even worse for single parents without any family or support, with nearly half surviving on incomes of less than $450 a month.
