A record breaking 11.6 million graduates have just left school in China this year. But they now face the toughest jobs market in recent memory. In the most recent figures, about one in five youths are officially unemployed. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has stopped publishing youth unemployment statistics.

Hi all, this is Wei, the director of the documentary. Thank you all for taking the time to watch the program. We spent 2 months tracking the job hunts of the young people you saw. I’m grateful for their participation, and moved by how they all had smiles on their faces and light in their eyes despite the curveball life has thrown at them. Our first profile Xiami now has his own channel, in which he talks with Chinese youths from all walks of life. If you speak Chinese, you can find him as 严肃的虾米.

If my parents didn't leave China 30 years ago, I would be screwed. I would legit be a live in child with my parents into my 40's or just be completely homeless. I did really bad in college in America, but I still managed to get a job that pays 80k USD a year, increasing every year by more than 3 percent. The fact that I could fail at school and still making a living at a higher than average salary is something I'm pretty thankful for. For peasants like us, the US is really the land of opportunity compared to China where the competition is beyond insane. When I went to University, I couldn't even compete with any overseas students from China. Like they got A's and I got D's and sometimes F’s

Similar situation, the problem is that you graduate from collage and when looking for a job its mostly "2-5y experience in similar position" how can that graduate find job if all companies demand already having experience and does not want to put money in training new workers. What we need is a system that trains fresh graduate on specific jobs and after that training based on their final performence they are given a list of job opportunities to start their journey as work force. Companies gain trained personel while the graduate gets less stress regarding finding their first job.

I graduated in the US in 2009, the year after the Financial crash. My entire graduating class that year had an unemployment rate of ~30%, and that's for people with a full Bachelor's degree or higher (even worse for those without). Nevertheless all of my friends who struggled then now have productive careers. So don't give up, keep looking, and get career experience wherever you can. Even part-time job and contracting work is better than nothing to put on your resume.

There is a growing problem around the world in regard to the younger generation. They were told that getting a degree would enhance the future prospects, and that was true for the Boomer, Gen X and to some level Millennial generations. We as kept telling them the best way to improve their future was through a degree, so what happened and is still happening is that more and more youngsters are attending Universities, so now it's no longer an elite qualification. What's happened is that because so many people now have degrees they've effectively become worthless, they've become undervalued. So the next step was to get a Master's Degree, which has meant more and more are getting a Post Graduate qualification, and so lessening the value of a Master Degree. There are just too many youngsters out there looking for graduate level first jobs, and not enough jobs to go around. So you find individuals working in job roles that don't require a degree level qualification. So what we have in China and many other countries are an abundance of the younger generation who are over qualified with degrees that effectively worthless.

Numbers of graduates are growing. But the job market is actually shrinking. And another situation in China is that you might be facing layoff once you over 35. Not to mention people need to work so hard to get a job with the toxic work environment like intense workload and overtime. ( if you don't take this job, someone else will. Thats how toxic it is) I hope China can turn things around becuase there are many students like me are facing this challenge.

China's experiencing what happened in the US and Europe when manufacturing jobs moved there. Chinese business owners themselves are manufacturing in India/Indonesia etc and starting to move to Africa for even cheaper labour. China's even building the infrastructure to support this and educating foreign students so they're proficient in Chinese. Now would have been a perfect time to spend on infrastructure and subsidised ev's. Will be interesting to see if China opens up to mass immigration. Cheap labour force on home turf and lots of renters for empty apartments paying mortgages for owners allowing them spend again. Literally billions in India and Africa looking to relocate for work.

Blame the push of feminism diverting resources and bursting the labor market while taking away worker's rights and leverage.

Currently, everyone is being exploited and large groups left unhappy due to the promises of decades of propaganda.

College/Graduate degree is only meaningful if it's able to truly separate those with degree and those without degree with secure, well paying jobs. When you over expand colleges and universities without producing enough job opportunities, only the colleges are making money. Also, there are simply not enough high paying jobs for 11 million graduates, some are going to have to go into trade jobs or hourly service/hospitality jobs. The mismatch of job prospect expectation with college/graduate degree versus job market reality is a problem for all countries right now.

Another reason is that Labor-intensive industry in China is quite exploitative, majority of youngers are not willing to seek a job in factory or catering industry. Meanwhile, the employers who offer low-skilled jobs are not willing to hire a worker with beholder's degree.

Well, Germany is heading for a similar problem. There is a huge need for construction workers or the like, while many of the current workers are about to retire. All this while many of the unemployed are rejected because they are overqualified and therfore earn a higher salary (or would demand it early on after being hired). And while all this is happening, many young people are striving to qualify for "easy" jobs because it is becoming more and more obvious how badly even the better educated ones of the workers are treated.

I think there was an interesting subtext running under this set of stories which is that it’s not clear what the government or anyone else can do about this. Almost all the people featured pursued degrees in what were recently major growth sectors of the economy or for socially desirable roles. The skills mismatch is made more acute without a clear signal of where new growth will be. There’s some public messaging around manufacturing but it’s not clear how much that sector can grow in terms of employment. The entrepreneurs trying to move up the value chain in agriculture is a reasonable bet, but it’s not clear what type of support people are getting in trying out such options.

When I graduated from university, my cohort and I also faced a tough time with employment due to the usual economic cycles and lack of work experience. It certainly doesn’t help now since so many kids are going into university instead of suitable vocational training. Given that the current global economy is undergoing a major slow down, unprecedented credit pressures, and major geopolitical shifts, are we over hyping this as a unique China problem? Seems like my kids and their peers are in a similar situation here in Canada. Perhaps we can work through this down cycle as a global community as we have done in the past if we stop spending so much time, energy, and resources on global conflicts.

Maybe the government of China should look into subsidizing apprenticeships as a way to bridge the skills-gap. It could be done instead of government incentives to go toward college. The companies could train the workers who don't have the specialized skills (but do have other skills the company needs). The money lost from subsidies would be replaced by the new workers' income tax. *Edit: I got to the point in the video at 35 minutes in where it talked about the very thing I had suggested.

The problem is that during China's lockdown, many companies were unable to continue operating and closed down. There were more and more graduates but fewer and fewer job opportunities. But more importantly, imagine if you graduated from college, you wouldn't expect to work as a factory worker or delivering for Uber, you'd look for some high-paying job. And many college students are unwilling to return to their hometowns to work because they think big cities are more prosperous. This has led to more and more college students graduating and staying in big cities, preferring to wait without any income until they find a 'decent' job. For example, if you are from India or Bangladesh and you want to stay and work in New York, the Americans will not give you a work visa or green card. At this time, many people would rather stay in the United States without income or work in restaurants rather than return to their hometowns.

This is mainly due to the huge number of graduates and basically, the job market is stagnated for this kind of kids. The thing is that when you have a high degree in China people tend to only work on their studies area, not wanting to embark on other career paths, this is a mentality problem, not a structural one. Chinese recovery from COVID-19 was bad only because of the government. they didn't end the lockdowns at the proper time and it was a bit unnecessary to do it. The problem with the job market for the youth is not only in China, just ask how many Europeans or Americans are working on their studies area and then you will see. I want to point out that this is not a straight failure, but it needs to be solved soon. I nearly cried with that girl at the end of the video, I hope she gets a job soon, even just to pay for her necessities.

This isn't just an issue in China. There have been an overvaluation/marketing of college education in many countries, including the US. This is because it used to be great. Once about a time, only the best and brightest(and some rich/powerful) get to go to college. So naturally, their out come are great, not just because they are college educated, but also because they are the best and brightest(or rich and powerful). In some ways, college is but a certificate for talent. But as college becoming increasingly common, that's no longer true. In many places, college educated have became the norm, so it is no longer a hallmark itself. Instead, competition is back to primarily merit, which the college education is no longer a proof of. Fundamentally, this is a societal problem at large on the perspective of colleges. While "everyone is created equal" sounds nice, it is just factually not true in regards to aptitude. People have different talents at different things. Many people just aren't book smart. Some are, for example, great with their hands and would have made a great tradesman that could earn more over mediocre grades at mediocre college but are pushed toward college nevertheless. As for the actual talentless, to be blunt, it is better to subsidize their life for... life, than having them waste educational resources and then have to be subsidized for life anyway. Barrier to entry for education/training based on meritocracy is not a bad thing inherently. The problem, naturally, is that this might be bad for the economically/socially disadvantaged, as almost all test of meritocracy is affected by prior education/training. But the solution to that should not be blind admission via lowering of the barrier, but rather attempt to provide better early stage education/training to them. This, btw, is also the reason why I dislike the concept of AA and any other such programs. While it might be the simplest solution and, if all else fails, a better-than-nothing compromise, the reality of the result tend to be grim. Given the high rate of, let's be honest, economical failures of college graduates, those who are barely able to get in through any preferential program are even less likely to be successful. So the end result tend to be an increase of student debt laden individuals among already disadvantaged population. it would be far better, IMO, to find ways to shore up primary and secondary education for the disadvantaged. This might take longer to see any results, but would actually help those who are talented but merely lack opportunity. As for those who, in the end, not suited for a paper education, they would know so sooner and look for alternatives. As alluded earlier, trades can be quite lucrative and we need more people in them.

Most countries are experiencing stagflation and shrinking economies now, thus more unemployment is to be expected. Singapore too is having a tough job market with many unemployed from around the world flooding it. Despite all this bad news about China's shrinking demographics, they still have a huge workforce; only that the young are currently a little overqualified for the available jobs. They just need to adjust their expectations for the time being to the current market conditions. It is only temporary but necessary to increase the country's productivity and help it pull through. Time to think laterally and apply some street smart not just book smart. '吃苦'' is not to be literally interpreted as ''eating bitterness'', but rather it means being resilient, having endurance and working through difficulties! Their educational system could do with more sports and outdoor activities that takes the kids out of their comfort zone and challenges them earlier in life. It will help them to develop personal skills they need in life!

I understand the pay is low (in China, in the Netherlands I honestly can't complain) so it may not be someone's first choice but to me it seems better to have a job instead of no job at all? Nursing and taking care of sick people/elderly should definitely be a calling. How would these young people feel if their loved ones would be treated/talked about like that? Maybe I should be glad that people who talk about caring for others in such a way don't end up actually working in the field.

Thank you for speaking for us. It’s fair and objective.

In China, the problem is the mismatch of job seekers expectation and reality. There are millions of jobs unfilled in service and blue collar space but young people don't want those jobs.

Yeah, because the job is really, really bad. Not to mention, it won't cover the spending for food, rent, utility bills and etc.

Exploitation and abusive working conditon is not conducive for these graduates.

The problem comes with the source as well. Need to create more jobs with decent minimum pay I.e more entrepreneurship and support for companies and better labour laws. Unfortunately I don't see that movement in China now. Zero covid policy had shuttered so many businesses.

This youth unemployment problem with "skill mismatch" topping, is what happens when you become too productive and the economic value is snatched by those living in the top and in the city. The rest of the population only work to service these urban elites. As productivity increase, and natural resource stretched thin, it's prudent to reduce population so as not to be a burden. What we see is simply natural kneejerk reaction in progress, with a lot of pain, with final effect of reducing population, which is Earth's response to human over-exploiting of its resource (mainly through over population).

大丈夫能屈能伸,高等教育輔助知識,但不增長隨機應變,處世之道的常識。I am a Thai, 77 years old, so I can’t speak for other countries. In Thailand, the top entrepreneurs mostly do not have university or even high school education. But so many Ph.D. working for them. Most of them started from bottom up, as street vendors, salesmen ………… in my own generation and social circle, in average, my high school (some even didn’t finish) classmates do better than friends going to universities. Please do not get the wrong message that I discourage university education. What we all need is the fighting spirit and wisdom of survival.

I think 21% is actually not bad. The youth here is defined between 16-24 yrs old during the month of June, when the Chinese schools generally end their spring term. Even in Europe or the US, the job opportunities for that age group are very limited - most of them will be working in the very basic service industries- like restaurants, coffee shops and fashion stores etc. Also they need seasonal jobs as in autumn most of them will have to go back to the schools. More meaningful stats will be youth unemployment between 21 and 24 who just left their higher education or vocational trainings, but there is nothing to report. I think someone wants to send out a political message but is very misleading on purpose.

Blame the Chinese government for defining their own statistics that way.
