Local (Cantonese) social media are now flooded with stories of the difficulties the roaches experience in finding work, and only 3 types of work typically found if they're lucky and persistent - food delivery, waiting at restaurants, working at Chinese/Asian supermarkets. And since many of the old Chinese owning these businesses don't trust the roaches, landing these jobs is far and between for the roaches.

Few days ago, a story of a roach family returning to Hong Kong after 6 months in the UK, has gone viral. The family of three - two 50 yr old adults and their teenage son thought UK was heaven, gave up their government housing in HK and took everything to the UK, only to find that their "heaven" was in reality a slice of hell, everything was expensive and the wife couldn't find work as a waitress (she was a career waitress in Hong Kong, the husband's crippled), part of the reason was that she spoke zero English... The whole time, wife thought she could easily work at some restaurant and beat the HK minimum wage...Wrong. The son did find a school however.

They decided to return to HK, but having given up their government-subsidized flat, they now have to fork out the market price for rent, currently living in a shoe-box flat. They wasted money, time and downgraded to a smaller flat. They fucked up.

I wouldn't trust these potential roaches myself even if they have the skill.

LOL, the truth is finally out, the reality is that moving for most people was prob a terrible choice (unless you got a gig at a top firm).
