For many ordinary Chinese, to make a living is still not easy, based on several factors such as tough job markets, large population, rising cost of living, changing life style, the internet, influx of migrant workers and the list goes on… If you make a China tour, you will discern plentiful outdated modes of earning a living in China, and the toil and hardship behind all the common people at grass roots. Some people cannot keep pace with the fast changing internet age and stick to the areas where they are familiar and feel comfortable; others favor the traditional way of doing things.
