This chapter examines the employment of rural migrants in urban enterprises. Rural workers in medium- and large-scale enterprises in cities are likely to be better paid, more willing to hold on to their jobs, and less rapidly drawn back by the claims of their rural households. Migrants earn an average of 80% of the non-migrant wage. The government has implemented policies restricting urban settlement of rural people to ensure preferential access of urban residents to urban jobs.
