New visa rules are making it nearly impossible to stay long term even if they wanted to..
Having to switch jobs or return back to your home country is hardly ideal
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

Let me tell you something that would prove you are dead wrong again.

A lot of Italian employees of a very successful metallurgic equipment manufacturer that is headquartered in Udine, Italy came to work in China at their facility in Changshu. Shortly after they were recalled back to their headquarters in Udine that is located in the North, which is the most developed area in Italy, many of them just returned to China for career development, even if they had to quit the job. One of them just settled down in Suzhou, running a coffee house.

An Austrian guy in his late-fifties who came from Styre, Austria was recalled to my company's Austrian facility in September this year, after working in China for more than 10 years, at different places including Dalian, Shanghai, Wuhan, and I just got the news this week that he has resigned, and now works with another company and is currently based in Shenyang.

Those guys are smart guys who know what they want, and where opportunities are.

People like these are a scourge for China. They will swell the number of residents in an overpopulated territory and add their weight to the pollution. Will they be allowed to bury their dead in coffins or will they be forced to cremate them?

In the US, The NFDA projects that by 2030, cremation rates will top 70%, a full reversal in roughly 30 years.  CANA, which only makes five-year projections, is more cautious in its estimates but does project cremation rates to hit 55% by 2020.
Nevada, however, leads the nation in the share of cremations at 77.4%, followed by Washington (76.3%) and Oregon (75.8%). Iowa, Wyoming and North Dakota, meanwhile, have seen the biggest increase in cremation rates over the last several years.

China's cremation rate was 45.6% for 2014 according to Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs.
UK'S is  75.% in 2015...
Sweden's is 70% and Denmark's 76%
Hope this helps...
