Chinese unemployment remains high despite economic rebound

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

China’s economy appears to have rebounded sharply from the coronavirus outbreak after an historic contraction.
But many people are still unemployed. Jobseekers have been encouraged to become street vendors to spur the country’s economic growth.
Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu reports from Chengdu.

      @qwertypous 046 It’s America’s fault. China has the virus under control, but the United States is still allowing the virus to spread, threatening the world.

    • Avatar LoC28C says:

      @qwertypous 046 it is already proven that the birthplace of the Covid-19 is not China. There is evidence that this virus is around in a few other countries early in 2019 already. It was only first discovered in China in December 2019.

    • Avatar S W says:

      China does NOT know that resources are limited in this world. that is why they are spending trillions of dollars in lifting up their weakest citizens from poverty so they can multiply in greater numbers. China thinks the weaker their citizens are, the stronger China will be. In the mean time, the Americans are eliminating their weakest citizens. Americans are now eliminating the weak Chinese by having trade wars with China. That is the law of Nature.

    • Avatar S W says:

      nice to see many chinese are NOT wearing their silly face masks and depend on their own immune system.
      Many people in China rely on others, for example:
      1.) face masks, instead of on their own immune system.
      2.) foreign schools and technology.
      those are the weak characteristics of the chinese people.

    8% unemployment (the conservative estimate) is what. . . 80 million unemployed? That is the conservative (official) figures. . . double that for a more realistic estimate and you have what. . . 16% unemployment. . .so 160 million unemployed?

    80 million unemployed is more then ALL of France. . .

    I think a little perspective about how much unrest is being suppressed in China right now would be the real story. . . I imagine it is quite brutal.

      Herbdoulaye Yousef full swing? Where did you get that information from? how can you tell me the production is in full swing when you guys don’t have any orders to export? My mom works in a large chain retail store in Canada, and she told me they couldn’t get any supplies from China due to lack of production. my uncle has a factory in Shenzhen and he said lots of factories are either closed or moved to Vietnam.

    • Avatar Herbdoulaye Yousef says:

      @Daniel Lai that’s why I said ‘majority’ in my comment, don’t make it seem like China should be held to extraordinary standards, countries around the world are recovering and China is recovering too, what I meant is that the main supply chains of the core of their economy is in the right direction, as for the companies going to Vietnam, I think it’s both something that’s normal and something they’ll have to think about to curtail and encourage the companies to stay, Vietnam is developing very fast

    • Avatar Daniel Lai says:

      Herbdoulaye Yousef countries around the world are recovering? Based on what? Do we have a vaccine? China stopped providing the data as they still report 4K deaths. There’s second wave and third wave around the world. Hong Kong is in third wave.

      You kept making up false information without providing any actual facts. Do you know why Chinese government doesn’t hand out the money to boost up the economy? Because they have low reserve on cash, they only hand out coupons. Even the Canadian and US government hand out some cash to boost up the consumption rate.

    • Avatar Herbdoulaye Yousef says:

      @Daniel Lai Me saying ” countries around the world are recovering ” doesn’t equate to false information because regardless of the amount of cases in all countries and the setback in their economies, efforts are being made to reverse the effects little by little, this very act in however small magnitude it may be and whatever direction or means with which it is done is the beginning of their ‘recovery’, so I said the word “is recovering” not the word “has recovered”, I’ve not given any other strong claims that’ll be ” false information, only my general view based on the economic recoveries of the main players that I follow, Telling me about the automobile shops your uncle knows in Shenzhen isn’t outright ‘fact’, your uncle does not know all the factories there, and more important the big players that really influence the industry there have their supply chains wrapped up in China, it’s almost impossible to leave, I’m sure the factories that have moved to Vietnam are not operating and are having it worse because Vietnam second wave is serious and they’ll most likely not be working now, so what’s the difference, it’s everywhere on the news that there are second waves in hk, France, Vietnam, us deaths over 140,000, centralgov sent teams To Help hk , I don’t have to mention that to give facts, You have to bring into consideration that the population of China is 1.4 billion before making decisions, us and UK are not up to a third of China and so they can be more liberal with cash, recently the chinesegovernment gave several billion yuan in coupons,it is not a meagre amount, it also gave loans to SMEs and also some educational facilitation grants, besides in terms of food security, only soy and pork are the main imports, the rest are largely self sufficient production so it’s cheaper for the people, the grants that the UK and us government gave are mostly for food since people are not going anywhere especially in this second waves. And China has a lot of money sapping infrastructure projects going on far far from the pace of their western neighbours, so of course that has its own drawbacks with regards to cash disbursement to boost consumption

    • Avatar Herbdoulaye Yousef says:

      @Daniel Lai as for providing data or not, why don’t you independently search for yourself without relying on whatever counter or feeder feeding you, in the pastweek there’s been hundreds of cases in Dalian, Xinjiang, and a little further back in Beijing, some other places have little cases too, these are all reported in the Chinese media. All over the world the mortality rate is low, china has firsthand experience in dealing with the virus so with a couple hundreds or a thousand cases. It’s normal to have very little to no deaths as mass testing is going on in these places and free and quick treatments, you’re of Chinese origin yourself, irrespective of your views about the CPC, why don’t you check out the Chinese media also to know what’s going on there at least to know what’s going on with your brothers there,

      dragondescendant1 because they have no election and no peaceful transition of power, that gives them more reason to hide the data. Every authoritarian and dynasty rules always ended up civil war and war in general.

      BTW… 6% unemployment rate is impossible in their current situation. They have no orders because all other countries are in pandemic, people lost their homes because of the flood.

    • Avatar dragondescendant1 says:

      dragondescendant1 and that’s the reasons all the high ranking officials in the CCP sent their kids and assets to “evil” US. Lol it seems you don’t know how they select the high ranking officials and the fractions within the party at all. It isn’t peaceful if you keep purging your political opponents and assign your buddies to the politburo. Also, the cultural revolution and the Gang of Four aren’t peaceful at all. Deng was purged before returning to power, Zheng gives up the role but retain the power during Hu’s era.

    • Avatar dragondescendant1 says:

      @Daniel Lai yeah right, gang of 4 were persecuted because they were abusive of power, brutal not peaceful, they were sent to jail to preserve peace, no drop of blood was shed because of their incarceration. You are advocating corrupt officials need not to responsible for their actions, people like Chen shui bian, Richard Nixon alike.
