Interesting article. My wife is from rural Jiangxi. Really small village. She's lived in Guangzhou 20 years and speaks fluent Cantonese. She could have got GZ hukou many years ago but declined it. Why? She's still got land rights in her village which we'll take advantage of when we retire.

Because there is only so much pretension, contrivance and hypocrisy the rational mind can endure...

The trend of urbanization, started in the 1980s when hoards of peasants rushed to tier 1 cities basically ended about three years ago. For the last couple of years, low skill labors are leaving these cities, going back to their home. This is because low end factories, especially those pollution inducing ones are being kicked out of these cities by CCP, coupled with the rise of operational costs in these cities they are a goner. The gold rush has ended. No jobs = no money = Time to Say Goodbye.

 

Peasants are also not welcomed, especially by the younger generations in tier 1 cities for their lack of civilized behaviors. In truth, if you want quality of life, cleaner air, purer mentalities, rural areas are not a bad choice.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China
A:Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money. -- walternc3
