Taizhou unveils new policies to bolster employment in manufacturing sector
Taizhou in East China's Zhejiang province recently unveiled nine new policies to boost employment in the manufacturing sector.
According to the policies, subsidies ranging from 200 to 800 yuan ($31-$124) will be offered to cover the transport costs of new employees in the city's manufacturing sector.
Specifically, people from Zhejiang will receive 200 yuan in subsidies, while those travelling from East China and other regions in the country will receive 500 yuan and 800 yuan respectively.
Those who sign a one-year labor contract and work for a manufacturer for over three months are also entitled to a one-time subsidy of 2,000 yuan.
Human resource agencies from the city will also be granted a maximum of 200,000 yuan for bringing employees to the city.
In addition, students from universities and technical colleges will be given a monthly stipend of 1,000 yuan if they undergo their internships in manufacturing enterprises.
Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises are also set to be given 2,000 yuan for hiring a fresh college graduate.
Meanwhile, the government has promised to cover 90 percent of the costs incurred from vocational training offered by manufacturing enterprises.
Incentives will be put in place to encourage enterprises to set up fixed liaison offices in cities where non-local employees are primarily from. Officials will also be dispatched to help enterprises cope with labor shortages.
