New jobs work out for 7.6m, unrest ruled out

Job creation momentum has let the nation's minister of human resources and social security to believe that social unrest triggered by unemployment could be a thing of the past.

"I am convinced the current measures taken by the central government will prevent further social unrest from happening," Yin Weimin told China Daily on the sidelines of a press conference at the State Council Information Office.

China has not seen any social unrest so far this year - protests, riots or demonstrations - triggered by unemployment.

The minister said Wednesday that the country created 7.57 million new jobs in 2009, some 84 percent of its annual goal.

And he added that the registered unemployment rate in urban areas stood at 4.3 percent and had been stable for some time.

Experts pointed out, though, that China's urban unemployment rate excludes migrant workers, and said that segment of the Chinese workforce was hardest hit by the global financial crisis.

"Updated statistics have shown the employment situation is generally stable," the minister said.

"The worst-case scenario we prepared for earlier, in which migrant workers who lost their jobs might turn up protesting, did not take place.
