Summary
Due to extremely low levels of fertility over the past generation, urban China now requires a constant inflow of rural migrants to maintain, much less increase, the workforce in China's cities. Beijing's current official "urbanization drive" is attempting to bolster China's flagging economic growth rates by accelerating the movement of peasants into the cities. But since most highly skilled labor from the countryside is already working in urban areas, the next wave of migrants may be less productive than authorities anticipate. "Migration with Chinese Characteristics" means police state controls on urban influx, including Beijing's notorious hukou system for individual identification and registration. Since authorities still prevent most migrants from obtaining new hukou where they currently reside and work, China now has hundreds of millions of "illegal aliens" toiling in its cities. The urbanization drive does not plan to fix this problem
