BEIJING — As many as 12 million people in China who are looking for jobs will not be able to find employment this year, an official newspaper reported Saturday.

China's top employment official said even if the country achieved this year's 8 percent economic growth target, only about half the 24 million jobseekers in the country would likely find work, the China Daily said.

The 12m might find a spokesperson who might organise a long march somewhere. :o

There might be plenty of bikes, but Chinese job centres charge fees...

Xie Fuyuan, a 26-year-old migrant worker hauling two bundles of belongings at a bus station in Changan, Guangdong Province, told Reuters on February 4 that he had travelled to several factory towns in search of work. He was unable afford the rising fees at so-called job centres, so he had to ask each factory, door-by-door

How would fees go down here?

So that's about 0.12% unemployment then?

that depends...China is I believe still about 3/4s rural farming self sufficiency.

apparently, if you marched the chinese off a cliff 4 abreast, you would never reach the end of the line.
