A CHINESE MAN RIDES A TRICYCLE OUSIDE BEIJING'S FORBIDDEN CITY LOOKING FOR PASSENGERS.
A Chinese man rides a tricycle ouside Beijing's Forbidden City looking for passengers as an old woman collecting recyclable trash walks past, May 31, 2004. Many people now working as passenger tricycle drivers and souvenir vendors at some of China's best known tourist sites were laid off from state-owned factories reforming to meet market standards. China's top economic planner is aiming for more than eight percent economic growth this year as the minimum needed to create enough jobs for millions of workers being laid off from state firms, and for farmers flocking to the nation's cities.
