The fast development of the western regions following the inception of China's "go west" strategy have created huge demand for skilled workers in traditionally labor-rich provinces in west China like Sichuan. Many migrant workers, who had worked far away from home for years, chose to stay adjacent and mend their tenuous family bonds as western employers raised once-meager wages for labors. The "returning home" of migrant workers further worsened the labor shortage that has already plagued China's industrial bases along the eastern coast. (Xinhua/Qiu Haiying)
