Cashing in on Spring Festival labor shortage

Migrant workers hoping to cash in on the Spring Festival labor shortage leave home in Jiangsu province heading for the bright lights of Shanghai on Jan 18. Some 27 people from Jiang Ying village will fill the vacancies left by those who have departed to be with their families to welcome the Year of the Dragon. It may be the most important festival of the year, but it also presents a golden opportunity to make easy money and avoid the travel chaos. More than 1,200 people have chosen to work in Shanghai during the lunar New Year according to the local labor and employment department. [Photo/ Xinhua]
