I’m sorry maybe my words got somewhat offence.
Of course the government should take the biggest part of the responsibility.
But the equality between street cleaner and the white collar may be realized in the future. But its impossible to come true in such an economy system.
yes of course the cleaner earns the bottom salaries. But why the Chinese labor are acknowledged as the cheapest labors in the world? Because most of them are not skilled.Why don’t you think these problem? Is there any inequality between Chinese Labors and Foreign Labors? Why these who sit in the office could earn more than these who clean the street? And even these white collars cannot afford their apartments. And have you ever seen these street cleaner spit on the road? The quality between those two levels are essentially different.
I’m not saying that every one who do such job are in such low quality.
I’ve done as a receptionist in an Exhibition. A German walked in front of me and ask me how much should he pay to the worker normally(who carried the baggage from the entrance to the service counter bout 200M)? i think 30RMB was enough. but the worker require for 200RMB Unless he would throw the Germans baggage out of the lobby. Do you think it’s rational? And i can just earn 100 RMB for one day there.
May be I should say I’ve somewhat unfortunately seen these workers who got the worst quality?
on the point of the government i absolutely agree with you. But i just argue with you about the opinion of the payment equality between different jobs.And i also think most non-shanghaineses have occupied many good offers in SH. These foreigners whose work are teachers for foreign languages can earn easy money in China, though they may be the native speakers. In middle schools these foreigners just need to show some clips or somewhat videos and chat with these students(who are dare to speak English to them) and after that, a lot of money can be earned easily. It’s the real inequality.
