The Chinese labour market has undergone an extensive restructuring in the last four-and-a-half decades, following the start of the economic reforms, and the open door policy for foreign investment in 1978, under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping. The nature of employment contracts, labour market stratification, and wage levels have all been redefined, and reformulated by this process, as much of the labour force shifted from state- owned-enterprises into other main sectors: domestically-owned-private enterprises, collective-owned-enterprises, foreign-invested-enterprises, and other business entities that also include self- employed people.
