Real products look this way
All the production facilities are located at a considerable distance from the office. These winding paths lead to them.
And here is the factory’s staff
Factory workers receive a daily salary of 120 yuan (about $450 a month), but their working day lasts for 14 hours.
Note that not all employees are using a respirator
The most dangerous operation is assembling the ball
Balls are produced in these two sheds, 50 meters apart
Gunpowder is placed into the half of each ball
