Hubei to create jobs for people in poverty

Added On April 8, 2020

 Coronavirus-hit Hubei Province in central China will launch a series of measures to boost the employment of people in poverty. The move aims to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on poverty alleviation.

According to the provincial poverty relief office on Monday, the province would hire more than 66,000 forest rangers and create some 50,000 "welfare jobs".
And each impoverished migrant worker is entitled to a 200 yuan or about 28 U.S. dollars living allowance. Employers will get subsidies for taking in the jobless.
Financial tools include low-interest loans of up to 1 million yuan to small startups with more than 10 poverty-stricken rural workers on their payroll.
