But many college graduates in major cities are ending up taking poorly paid jobs in areas such as telemarketing or real estate sales, he said, "and often these wages are lower than a factory worker in Shenzhen." The average wage for college graduates in 2012 was $461 a month, barely 20% higher than the $381 figure for migrant workers, as calculated by the National Bureau of Statistics. In Li's case, she chose an environment-related major three years ago because she thought it would be a sure-fire way to get a job, perhaps with a more information company doing pollution reports or making monitoring equipment. But she said that only 10% of her classmates at the Environmental Management College of China had found work through recruiters visiting her school in the city of Qinghuangdao before graduation in June.

Even after Xi was formally installed as party chief last November, political bargaining continued and involved the question of http://gaineschrf.wikispaces.com/Kim+Kardashian+%27obsessed%27+with+Amanda+Bynes%2C+mom+says how to deal http://journals.fotki.com/houstonzums/my-blog/entry/bfrqwbrtrfdf/ with Bo Xilai." Cheng says Xi will be glad to see the end of the matter.

China's influence in Africa -- where critics say it ignores human rights issues -- has risen along with its global clout as http://blog.bitcomet.com/post/3726681/ the continent has become a key supplier of natural resources, helping fuel the Asian giant's rise to become the world's number two economy. Xi, who made the continent part of his first foreign trip after taking office as head of state earlier this year, congratulated Kenyatta on his election victory. "I believe, given your vigour and vitality, you should be able to lead the Kenyan people in registering even greater accomplishments on the road ahead towards your national development," Xi said. Kenyatta -- the son of http://pereztzbi.gather.com/ Jomo Kenyatta, his country's founding leader -- noted that Kenya was celebrating the 50th anniversary of its independence this year.
