The article reports on the increasing problem of employment in China. The country's employment situation has been described as very severe for there are about 20 million new labourers emerge in urban and rural areas every year, while the cities and towns could only provide around 12 million jobs. On the other hand, the country's last five years of fast and large economic growth could create only 51 million jobs in urban areas, which has been a challenge to generate more jobs.
