An interesting photoseries has gone viral on Chinese social media showing netizens just what a good hard day's work looks like.

Ten workers at a coal mine outside of Huaibei city, Anhui province sat down to take pictures with their wives right after coming out of the mine, wearing overalls, helmets and a thick layer of black soot. Then, they left for the bathhouse. After washing up, they returned to pose for another picture. Check out the results:

The pictures have attracted nearly 200,000 comments on NetEase, with many saying that society should afford more respect to the miners, and the government should raise their salary.

However, quite the opposite has been happening recently. Earlier this year, China announced that it was cutting 1.8 million jobs in state-owned coal and steel industries, though some believe that number could soon rise as high as 5 to 6 million.
