But now, reports Bloomberg, controversial billionaire Li Ka-shing has hired new workers while others have returned to work – meaning that the average ship waiting time has fallen from 60 hours to 25 hours. Nearby ports in Guangdong won’t be happy with this news – more than 100 vessels have re-routed since the strike began.
