These guys are dreaming!
The days of cheap China are over. White collar work for blue collar salary? And in China, I am told they don't pay performance bonus. A young woman with the deportment and sophistication to make the picture perfect sales associate for Cartier or Chanel is not going to put up with a zillion of rules and stand for eight hours under video surveillance. If she wants to work at all, she could become a flight attendant and find a rich husband. Fat chance at La Perla, Ferragamo, may be.“And why learn English?”, she might say. I am not planning to live abroad. And where do I go from here?” She can have a much better life as personal assistant of a high officer or have a condo and a sports car as Er Nai.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Chinese man finds new way as an entrepenuer.

Jicheng Liu, 32, is charged with a felony for his role in the operation, and felony cyber-stalking, authorities said.

Following a months-long joint investigation by the Chicago Police Department, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, Liu was arrested Tuesday after authorities executed a warrant on a home in the 1700 block of West Altgeld Street and confiscated truckloads of merchandise believed to have been stolen.

Officers from the Chicago police Town Hall District burglary team, along with postal inspectors and state’s attorney’s office personnel, went to the Altgeld home to place Liu into custody on an arrest warrant for the cyber-stalking charge, authorities said.

During his arrest, authorities said they discovered he was in possession of the large quantity of stolen goods.
