News PhotoAsking,Container,Employment and Labor,Hong Kong,Horizontal,Occupation,Photograph,Placard,Supporter,WagesPhotographer Collection: AFP 2013 AFPA placard bearing a photograph of tycoon Li Ka-shing lies on the ground as dock workers and their supporters gather at the Kwai Chung HIT container terminal during a strike, asking for better wages in Hong Kong on April 1, 2013. The dock workers, who work in one of the world busiest container ports in the world, claim their wages had not gone up in 15 years. HIT, which operates 12 berths, is a unit of tycoon Li's Hutchison Port Holdings Trust -- part of the vast empire owned by Asia's richest man, whose firms control about 70 percent of the city's port traffic. The placard states that Li's stock dividend is 7 billion Hong Kong dollars and the dividend is tax exempt. AFP PHOTO / Antony DICKSON (Photo credit should read ANTONY DICKSON/AFP/Getty Images)
