Guangdong's labor shortage is expected to increase in 2007 as more migrant workers leave the province due to poor working conditions and low wages, the South China Morning Post reported. Local labor officials estimate that Guangdong's demand for skilled workers will increase 20% this year and the number of ordinary workers needed will rise by 10%. A recent survey showed that there were 7.3 million job vacancies in the province in 2006, but only 4.8 million positions were filled. The Guangdong Labor and Social Security Bureau has asked local governments to organize more job fairs in an attempt to attract more migrant workers.
