Report: Migrant Workers' Income Rises in 2007

China's migrant workers' income rose in 2007, according to a report released by Shanghai-based Fudan University on Friday.

The average monthly income of migrant workers reached 1,200 yuan (US$165) in 2007 with an increase of 200 yuan over the previous year, said the report.

The report, surveyed 10,734 companies in over 40 cities, revealed that migrant workers in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai had relatively higher incomes.

About 44.6 percent migrant workers hoped to continue to work in cities and 17 percent hoped to find jobs in Beijing or its surrounding areas, the report said.

The report also revealed 22.2 percent migrant workers were unable to save money as their incomes were just enough for their living.

China has about 200 million migrant workers across the country.
