Why do local governments and enterprises "rob people" so hard?

  Xu Hongcai, deputy director of the Economic Policy Committee of the China Policy Science Research Association, told Zhongxin Finance and Economics that after the optimization and adjustment of the new crown epidemic prevention and control measures, the domestic supply chain and industrial chain are in a critical period of recovery. There is still an information asymmetry between suppliers and suppliers.

  "Migrant workers themselves are relatively scattered, and their contact with enterprises may have been interrupted during the epidemic in the past few years. Therefore, the government organizes enterprises to recruit workers across provinces to help solve the employment problem in the short term." Xu Hongcai said.

On January 31, after the job seekers signed an employment agreement with the company, they took a special car with the returnees from other places and went directly to the front-line jobs.

  In addition, the economic development of the central and western regions has also provided migrant workers with more room for choice and room for "bargaining".

Xu Hongcai believes that migrant workers working across provinces have problems such as high working costs and inability to take care of their families. Therefore, when local incomes rise, more people will be willing to work locally.

"Economic development in the Midwest has intensified competition in the labor market, which is a good thing for workers."

  Xu Hongcai pointed out that the essence of the phenomenon of "employment shortage" in enterprises is still the structural imbalance between supply and demand in the labor market.

"Some companies can't find suitable workers, but many workers can't find suitable jobs. Oversupply and short supply coexist at the same time." He said that due to information asymmetry, labor-intensive industries, low-end industries The rise in labor demand may be difficult to meet in a short period of time, but the resumption of work and production in the entire industry is moving towards normalization.
