With the rapid development of China's construction industry, the phenomenon of wage arrears has become increasingly prominent. This article focuses on the social phenomenon of Chinese construction workers demanding unpaid wages, pointing out the universality and severity of the problem of unpaid wages among off-farm workers in the construction industry, and exploring various factors that make wage arrears increasingly serious and difficult to regulate. Then this paper further analyzes the challenges and difficulties faced by off-farm workers in the process of claiming underpayment. Solving the problem of wage arrears is of great practical significance, not only related to the immediate interests of off-farm workers, but also helps to build a harmonious employment relationship and a stable social environment. This article aims to provide ideas for effectively solving the problem of underpayment in the construction industry and for off-farm workers to better claim unpaid wages.
