Example text

One government official estimated that in the mid-1990s, 40% of the construction workers in Beijing were migrants (Guang 2003). Migrants in the City “It was exciting today. We went out to Dong Fang Market and had a drink in a modern and expensive cafe. An ugly local guy bullied us but we fought back… Why do the local people never treat us as human beings? ” (Yue, a rural migrant, recounted by Pun 2005: 161). While reaching the city and securing jobs and housing is an enormous accomplishment, migrant women still face hardships in their daily lives in the city; as Yue’s story suggests, urbanites often discriminate against them.

In addition, I conducted The Dalian Economic Zone 25 both formal interviews and informal, unscheduled interviews with other people. There were times when I deliberately chose to talk to a particular person (a woman who supervised children near my apartment, a waitress in a restaurant I frequented, factory managers), but at other times, I started conversations with strangers.

Her insights are useful here: however negatively peasants are seen when they reside in rural areas, it is when peasants move to the city that they are viewed as most threatening.
