Beijing, China
Jiang Shuaihui, 25, a migrant worker from Henan province poses for a photo at the entrance of a room he is renting for 200 RMB/month (30 USD) in Tongzhou district of Beijing, China February 25, 2016. Three months after coming to Beijing from the southern China, Shuaihui finally found a job as a phone operator and will start his training next week. On curtains of his room he wrote messages to warn and encourage himself. Messages read "You Can Do It", "You Are Wasting Your Time", "Stop your Bad Habits", "Strive To Be Strong", "You Are Waiting To Die". A whole generation of Chinese youth raised in a miracle economy over the past decade tilt headlong into a period of material uncertainty as jobs come less easily. As China’s annual parliament sessions kick off next month, the Communist Party will unveil its Five-Year Plan widely expected to outline additional measures to help create jobs and strategies to soothe the sting of massive layoffs as the economy corrects its past excesses and moves away from traditional heavy industries such as coal and steel.
