Abstract

As shown by an analysis of the monthly income and hourly income of migrant labor forces, although the income of migrant labor forces (migrant workers and urban-urban migrant labor force) has significantly increased in recent years, wage discrimination was still striking. At the same education level, the hourly wage of the labor force with a rural registered permanent residence was still apparently lower than that of the labor force with a non-rural registered permanent residence. Even in the manufacturing industry, there was a relatively large income gap in the labor forces with a relatively high education level between the eastern and western regions—this was the most important cause for continued migration of the labor forces at relatively high levels of human capital to the eastern region.
