The death of the Chinese man Xiaojun Chen, Sydney, Chen Xiaojun, has struck a double emotional and economic blow to his family in China.

In the evening of 29 September, The 43-year-old panda take-out (Hungry Panda) rider, Chen Xiaojun, was on his way to Sydney's Chinese gathering area, Colliding with a bus No .304 at the intersection of Odea Road (O'Dea Avenue) and Gadi Gallon Road (Gadigal Avenue), Serious injuries to the head and feet. He was rushed to St. Vincent's hospital (St Vincent') for s Hospital) Rescue, The next day was declared dead.

Mr. chen's meal in sydney was a economic source for his wife, wei lihong (Lihong Wei),15-year-old daughter ,8-year-old son and disabled parents-in-law in shaanxi province.

Nearly two months after the incident, Wei Lihong again accepted the Australian media interview. A translation of a statement to the Australian News Network (News.com.au) admitted that the loss of a beloved husband made life difficult.

"To me, it's like a part of my life is gone. I would rather not exist than lose him. She is the love of my life and the good father of the children. "

"He is the pillar of the family. This is our great loss. It brings not only grief, but all the good things in our lives are ruined. "

Chen's widow, referring to her children's status quo, said her "bravado" daughter tried to comfort the family, but her son was still young and could not really understand all this.

"My 8-year-old son asked me ,'Can you get our father back? If you can get him back, I'll study hard and be a good boy. "

A one-time death pension of $834200 and a funeral fee of up to $15000 are granted to families of workers who have suffered from work difficulties in the new state. A further $149.3 per week per dependent child is available under the labour compensation provision. Other states and territories have similar schemes.

However, most workers in the field of part-time economic are considered only "independent contractors ", not" employees ". This means that they and their families may not be eligible for labour compensation.

"Our family is in the countryside. Chen Xiaojun has been sending money home to support the whole family. "Having lost our main source of income, we are facing economic difficulties ," Wei said. "

Wei lihong said she has always known that "panda take-out" does not treat her husband as an employee. Although the company paid Wei Lihong for travel to and from Australia and China, she still called for system reform.

"I can't believe that my husband, who worked hard for Panda Takeout, did n' t get any protection; I can't believe that our family received very little economic support after his death. "Wei Lihong said that she still can not understand or accept why the company does not regard Chen Xiaojun as an employee.

"Every worker engaged in such work shall receive appropriate protection and compensation. All workers are entitled to compensation, which is a manifestation of the importance that enterprises or the state attaches to human rights. I want to see change, so that I can help families who suffer the death of their loved ones and such tragedies.

Mankovic (Jasmina Mackovic), lawer head of the Slater and Gordon Practice group and representative of Wei Lihong, said the failure to automatically classify the delivery rider as an employee was a "cruel loophole ". According to the New State Workers Compensation Act (NSW Workers'Compensation Act), they must be considered employees.

Markovic is representing Weili Hongfang, the panda take-out claim death pension. "It's shocking that the family used to rely on his (Chen Xiaojun) remuneration for their livelihood, while the breadwinner (the family) little recourse. "

Many of these workers come from different countries and hold various visas. They try to earn some money to remit home —— They don't necessarily know the system or what rights ." they can and should enjoy

He noted that this was a "huge loophole" in the field of odd economic ". "Cruel" rules will be change, to protect workers.

Even more regrettable, in just two months, five diners have been killed on the Australian road, Chen Xiaojun is only one of them.

speaker of panda take-out said in an earlier statement that the safety of diners was the company's "top priority" and that recent accidents were "heartbreaking ".

"All our diners have to pass the road gauge knowledge test, and we have a series of safety guides to help them understand how to deliver meals safely. However, it is clear that more needs to be done, and we are committed to making change ."speaker positive statement.
