The Spring Festival is approaching, and the latest plan for the Spring Festival transportation situation has also been released.
According to official predictions, during the peak of Spring Festival travel in 2024, the cross-regional flow of people across society will hit a record high. There has been an increase in traffic from visiting relatives, students, migrant workers and tourists. Passenger flows in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Manger Bay Area are more concentrated, and the transportation system continues to operate at full or even overload. It can be seen that in the future, employment conflicts in various industries will become increasingly prominent. In this regard, we have carried out relevant research.
The order is urgently delivered
Employment conflicts are about to emerge
From the end of December to the beginning of January, there was a wave of carry-over in the textile market, which actually brought a lot of new orders. Although most orders are still small, the volume is considerable, and some textile companies have directly postponed the holiday time and even announced a series of incentives. After entering mid-January, textile companies have determined the Spring Festival holiday time. Judging from market feedback, the holidays for textile-related companies are generally concentrated from late January to early February, but employees in remote areas have returned home early.
A domestic sales company: “We still have the last wave of orders from the Wuhan market to complete, and we plan to have a holiday in early February. There are not many people in the company, and they are all on duty.”
A trader: “Our order situation is pretty good. It’s nearing the end of the year. Orders need to be completed many years ago. If there is a holiday, it will probably be one to two weeks before the end of the year.”
A pongee textile enterprise: “Our machines are currently fully operational and we are preparing to do so until the end of the year. The holiday time will be similar to previous years.”
A printing and dyeing company: “We haven’t determined the holiday time yet, but we are still very busy right now. Some workers (from Yunnan, Guizhou and other places) have returned home early, leaving a gap in employment.”
The emergence of a “rush for labor” before the Spring Festival is undoubtedly a major test for textile companies’ employment. Employees’ eagerness to return home will make the labor problem more and more prominent before the Spring Festival, directly affecting the production and operation of enterprises.
Peripheral Capacity Pressure
I have no choice but to change the machine
During the investigation, we also found such a company. Their order maintenance status is not bad, but the power supply is less than 50%, and the holiday time is relatively early. According to normal logic, most people feel that there is something wrong with their jobs. In fact, according to the person in charge of the company, “We can still receive orders and the employees are here, but we need to replace some machines before the year, so the holiday period will Advance to January 16th.”Before the Spring Festival, the company plans to replace more than 50 narrow machines with wide machines. On the one hand, this is because compared with wide machines, the original narrow machines are The profit performance of the machine is not optimistic and it is easy to lose money; on the other hand, considering the company’s development plan, I want to expand product coverage and obtain more orders. It is understood that the cost of this replacement is as high as millions of yuan. The textile boss reluctantly said that it was very difficult to make this decision. Under the premise of optimistic expectations, it may take 3-4 years to pay off. In recent years, the growth of peripheral production capacity has intensified the size of the textile industry, and the living space of local enterprises has been compressed. Especially in terms of price, there are more policy dividends in the periphery, and the cost advantage brought by the superposition of scale makes it stand out in the homogeneous competition, cannibalizing the already meager profits of local enterprises.
In general, as time is getting shorter and shorter, textile companies are beginning to hesitate about urgent orders. After all, existing orders have not yet been completed, and there will be more uncertainties in the future. They must also set aside time for workshop inspections. Carry out inspection or rectification. Therefore, compared to urgent orders, orders placed after the new year will be more popular.
