China warns of future "workforce shortage"

Posted by parrotpatriot on July 24, 2009

Get this: China is loosening its one-child restrictions on some “eligible” citizens because it fears a future “workforce shortage”.

 China steps back from one child policy

Officials in Shanghai have issued a call encouraging couples to have a second child to help avert a labour shortage in the years to come.

Basically, it needs a larger supply of young people to support an aging population.  Oh those doggone unintended consequences.
