The workers were demanding a 20 percent pay rise as the strike entered its 25th day, and called on Li to intervene in the impasse, which has drawn attention to the city's high living costs and wealth gap. Li's Hongkong International Terminals (HIT) has tried to distance itself from the dispute, saying the workers are not direct employees but were taken on by subcontractors, which set their own levels of pay.
