The eighth day of the Lunar New Year is the day when most factories report and recruit workers. On the morning of the eighth day of the Lunar New Year, many migrant workers go to various factories to register early in the morning, hoping to find their favorite job early in the new year. Judging from the registration status of several textile factories on Shengze Yuan Road, the mentality of migrant workers this year is relatively positive. Many people left their contact information early on the eighth day of the Lunar New Year. Factories are in a hurry to recruit workers and workers are busy looking for jobs. So what are the characteristics of factory recruitment this year?
1. There is a shortage of front-line jobs, and skilled workers are the most popular ones
Twisters at the front and lathes at the back are front-line jobs in textile factories. Front-line jobs often involve high intensity of work and harsh working conditions. Many young people nowadays are no longer willing to engage in such jobs. In the past, people from places like Henan and Anhui accounted for a large part of front-line jobs, but now the geographical differences of factory workers are not so obvious. The proportion of workers from other places across the country, such as Guangxi, Yunnan, Hunan and other places, is constantly rising.
This year, textile factories still recruit the most front-line positions such as car workers. At the recruitment site, the author found that although manufacturers are eager to recruit front-line workers, they still prefer skilled textile workers at the recruitment site. Skilled workers can directly take up the job, while those with no experience often just sign up and wait for notification from the factory. Although factories are looking to skilled workers, these skilled textile workers are still comparing wages and benefits in various factories to find an employer they think is satisfactory. It is said that recently, some factories will pay a referral fee of 500 yuan per person once they are hired as long as someone introduces skilled workers. This shows how in short supply skilled workers are in the entire textile industry.
2. Salaries are stable and still have an upward trend
When asked whether workers’ wages will be raised this year, the person in charge of a company that makes elastic fabrics in Shengze told the author that they officially started work on the tenth day of the Lunar New Year. The current minimum wages are 4,700-4,800 yuan for twisting workers and 4,400 yuan for winding workers. RMB 6,500-6,600 for a car stop worker and 7,200-7,400 RMB for a security guard. The salary will be adjusted based on the actual situation in the later period. In addition to weaving factories, printing and dyeing factories also have a high turnover of personnel at the beginning of each year. On the recruitment blackboard of a printing and dyeing factory in Shengze, the monthly salary is written very conspicuously next to each recruitment position. The salary of the position is Around 4,000-5,000 yuan/month. It can be said that some manufacturers have a more conservative attitude on the issue of salary and benefits, but some manufacturers have said that they will increase the salary for each position by 100-200 yuan per month on the original basis this year. Nowadays, many manufacturers calculate based on output, and the wages they offer are minimum wages. If the factory is profitable and the workers have high output, the wages they receive will actually be higher. Therefore, those manufacturers with good profits are more favored by workers. favor.
In addition to salary being the most important factor for workers, many factories now provide accommodation for employees. Employees only need to pay utility bills. The factory provides accommodation, which saves employees the cost of renting a house, and is also very attractive to migrant workers. Whether it is a factory recruiting workers or a migrant worker looking for a job, it is actually about finding a balance between mutual interests. If both parties unilaterally pursue how much the other party can pay, it is estimated that this balance point will never be maintained. It can be said that whether it is a factory or a migrant worker, it is actually not difficult to recruit people or find a job, but it is not easy to recruit good workers or find a better job. At the beginning of the new year, everyone should do it and cherish it.
