Lives On Migrant Workers In China

Although we hear a lot of talk about the trade and manufacturing within China we don’t often hear about the people who are actually working in the manufacturing jobs. A new documentary series by the Financial Times includes a video called ‘The End of the Chinese Miracle’, which reports on the less known stories of the employees within the manufacturing companies that have supported China’s economic boom over the past three decades. The video talks us through the movement of these labourers and what it’s like for them to survive. It shows how the move from small towns to big cities has taken its toll on the families of the nation, specifically from the perspective of a father who is supporting his children and grandparents back at home. Watch ‘The End of the Chinese Miracle’ from the Financial Times below.
