Food delivery boom fuels rural employment

Booming food delivery services in China have propelled the country's anti-poverty campaign as more rural people come to cities for delivery jobs, a report showed. About 77 percent of the 2.7-million-plus people working for delivery service giant Meituan-Dianping come from rural areas, and about 670,000 of them are from impoverished regions, according to a report from the company. Over half of them work less than four hours each day and nearly 30 percent of the food delivery people earn more than 5,000 yuan ($741) each month. More than half of them chose to work in their own region, which is most notable in Central China's Henan province.
