Affected by the epidemic, the domestic manufacturing industry ushered in a wave of wage cuts.In this era of soaring prices, workers’ wages are falling instead of rising, and a large number of workers may choose to leave.Can not help but raise social concerns, if there is not enough labor, what is the future of China’s manufacturing industry?It has been two years since the outbreak of the epidemic, and the serious situation abroad has delayed the resumption of work and production in many industries and reduced the scale of orders.Although China stabilized the epidemic early, but there are not enough orders, enterprises can not benefit, so they have to cut wages to save costs.It is reported that some manufacturers in order to attract cooperation, deliberately lower prices, other peers have no choice but to follow, so the industry as a whole are reducing profits.In addition, profits are shrinking while raw material costs are rising.According to data, since last year, the rising prices of steel, aluminum and other materials in the manufacturing industry have led to a sharp squeeze in industry profits, and some factories have fallen into debt.You know, manufacturing jobs are very hard, and the workers work themselves to death with the sole purpose of making money.Prices are rising, wages are falling, and workers are sure to be unhappy, which could lead to a wave of employee departures.A manufacturing worker surnamed Wang said he and his colleagues’ salaries have been cut from 6,000 yuan to 4,000 yuan since last year.Many of the factory’s workers left, either to start their own businesses in their hometowns or to work as delivery boys and earn more.One of the biggest concerns today is how manufacturing will fare without enough workers.From a human point of view, it is reasonable to lose your salary and quit your job.If factories do not try to transform themselves, a large number of manufacturing plants could go bankrupt in the future.Although nowadays it is the Internet age, the manufacturing industry is indispensable, so the problem of labor shortage in manufacturing industry needs to be solved urgently.It has been observed that modern young people prefer delivery jobs rather than manufacturing jobs.There are two main reasons for this phenomenon, including the reasons inside the factory.First of all, in order to attract workers in the process of hiring, manufacturing factories will deliberately mark high salaries as rewards.But when workers get paid, they find that if they don’t work overtime, they can’t get a high salary at all.Thinking of this, many young people would rather deliver food, which is also overworked, long hours, and free and loose delivery.Secondly, the working environment in the factory is poor, and some people will feel sick after staying for a long time.At the same time, factory work has a quota, not to complete the good, leaders will scold and fines.Therefore, working in a factory, the pressure is relatively large, and contradictions between colleagues are also easy to occur, because some leaders will favor workers with connections.They don’t have to take these factors into account when they deliver food. They just finish their orders, and their wages are docked only when there are complaints.In view of these two situations, a large number of young people have taken jobs as delivery attendants after graduation.For this situation, there have been experts lambasted, college students who deliver food are not promising, to the development of the individual and society are adverse.This is not to deny the job, but to think that college students who choose this unskilled job will waste talent, and will promote the shortage of workers in other industries.Ironically, every year, a large number of graduates in China are unable to find jobs, and some are forced to stay in school for further study.However, these students are not willing to enter the manufacturing industry, and all focus on public institutions or state-owned enterprises.
