    well, in China, the demand of blue-collar jobs are much more than its supply,so the salary of peasants worker rise rapidly.

    Instead, the demand of white-collar jobs are much less than the supply, so the salary of university graduates are even less than that of peasant workers'.

    This is a rather sad situation considering how much China has invested in educating their young. I still think one of the principal problems leading to this issue is the obsessive governmental intrusion in all the economic sectors. Perhaps it would be better to reduce restrictions in the areas that promote innovation and small business development.
