Q: Are chinese employers generous or...?

I'm just wondering why is there always too many waiters/employees at  coffee/bars/restaurants/hotels/....

 

so many times I've been in places where they seem to be little customers yet the owners seem to always have many employees.

 

is it show off? miss calculation? ?? I am wondering lol

Govt subsidies , one thing China has right is their push to keep their people working as opposed to back home , paying people to not work and paying companies to ship  jobs overseas

The cost of labor is kept low and needs are kept low in cost with trade imbalance surpluses giving the government the financial assets to subsidize the system.

As this changes though, labor costs rising, dependency on more expensive food from higher labor countries imported, factories leaving, all bets are off the table for the consequences and may be the reason the CCP is ordering some debt ridden companies to liquidate foreign holdings and stop some overseas buyouts. They need to get deleveraged and bring the money home before the house of cards becomes a trash pile.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
