20 million jobless in china

feb 2, 2009

twice the number they thought were unemployed recently.

that's a good enough number of people to cause riots. maybe they will in fact overthrow the government. then whatever will the chindu and outlook do? (is outlook india a translation of xinhua's outlook magazine?)

one out of seven migrants. that means china officially admits there are 140 million migrants.

others have estimated more than 200 million migrants exist, and that almost all of them will be permanently unemployed if they went back to their villages, because agriculture has been devastated by paving over and pollution of the land.
