Abstract

This is a postscript to an edited volume analyzing the changing status of labor rights in the People’s Republic of China, with a focus on challenges to their implementation. The postscript examines some of the wider social, political, economic, and cultural implications of Chinese labor rights reforms. It takes as it point of departure the Labor Law of 1994, which treats labor as a singular, abstract category, in contrast to the preceding regime under which the terms of one’s employment varied depending on whether one worked in the state-owned sector, the collective sector, or the private sector of the economy.
