Laid-Off Workers in a Workers State: Unemployment with Chinese Characteristics by Gold, T.

Communist parties lead revolutions in the name of the industrial proletariat. But in the course of Chinas post-Mao reforms, perhaps no class has experienced downward mobility as steep as the working class. An estimated 30 million of state enterprise workers have experiencedxiagang(laying-off), a stop-gap measure short of full unemployment, leaving them in a sort of limbo without the technical or psychological skills to adjust successfully to Chinas new marketized, privatized, and globalized economy. In this book, an international team of scholars explores not only the politics ofxiagang, but also the effect on Chinese workers and their families, and the variety of their responses to this unprecedented dislocation in their lives.
