Filthy Rich: Chinese millionaire lives secret Double Life as STREET SWEEPER


A Chinese millionaire lives a secret double life working as a street sweeper for £140-a-month.

Yu Youzhen, 54, cleaned-up after receiving a government payout and is now worth 10 million yuan – £1 million.

But instead of using the money to live a life of luxury she has kept her job as a sanitation worker.

Diligent Yu said she doesn’t want to lose her work ethic or set a bad example for her children.

She said: “Work is not just about the salary, it makes one focused. Laziness gives rise to all sorts of bad habits.

“I want to be a role model for my children, I do not want to sit around idly and eat up my fortune.”

Lucky Yu’s rags to riches story began five years ago when her family land was bought by the Chinese government for a property development.

She used her windfall to become a real estate tycoon building up an empire of 21 properties – and earning a massive income from the rent.

But mum-of-two has no plans to retire even after enduring around 40-years of hard labour working as a farmer, cook, lorry driver and street sweeper.

She wakes up at 3am, six-days-a-week, donning her orange jacket to empty bins and scrub streets in the city of Wuhan.

Her boss says that in 14-years of work Yu has never been late and has only had three days off to attend the funerals of her mother-in-law and father.

Both her children still have jobs and son Liang, 33, has even worked selling lottery tickets.



  1. This is the kinda gist I’d love to read daily on this site & not about those ugly Nigerian porn stars whose pictures almost get me puking most times, no link on this story to share wt peeps on other sites tho, kudos on this one, bless!

  2. This is who the Chinese are. She’s not the very educated type. Even if she was, her Chinese education will not be of much importance in the UK except where necessary and it’s rare so they, because of the love of just trying to live in the UK and mix up with white people, will do anything. Apparently, the Chinese are good at working extremely hard like termites and good at spending less on certain things and then very good at accumulating and stacking up money.

    They just have one child and in rare cases two children and spend all their lives working hard,stacking up money, buying houses and cars and living large. At age 25, many Chinese already have their own homes. They are not like Nigerians who pretend to have money. A Chinese can wear one shirt and one trouser for a week or two while saving money. But Nigerians will spend all they have on food and clothes and start begging others for money. Chinese are very content with what they have and these guys have money more than Nigerians. They on a majority drive New cars and not fairly used like Nigerians.

    Nigerian government officials need to come to China and learn about this people to improve that rickety economy they’re trying to murder.
