People who cannot afford to live in a house in Hong Kong and Japan take advantage of McDonalds’ “doors are always open” policy and live in their restaurants. They are known as “McRefugees.”

In Hong Kong, more than 300,000 domestic helpers – mostly Filipina and Indonesian women – work up to 18-hour days, 6 days a week, for just HK$4,310 (US$ 555) a month.
