Generational Divide


Every once in a while, we see the latest figures on the state of China’s booming economy. But what many people on the outside may not know – is that the real backbone of industry, is the migrant worker. These are the people who leave their towns, by the millions, to work in the cities. They are builders, electricians, clothing makers – you name it. But some young migrant workers today – see opportunities beyond work life. Yin Hang started his story in Beijing, then travelled to Taiqian in Henan province, where he met two workers – a father and son – who have very different ideas.

E-commerce villagers cash in


Shopping online in China, like many countries, is easier, faster, and often cheaper. As a result, people across the country are cashing in, even those who’ve never even used a computer before! 20 years ago a trend like this wasn’t possible. But today it’s dramatically changing lives in rural areas. Ying Yiyuan went to Suichang in Zhejiang Province, where she found out how they’re doing it.
