I met few old friends from different cities in the past few months. They tried to find a job like clerks in shopping malls or office empolyees as they have college degrees. They are more than 40 yrs old and which is difficult for them to find a job like that. As the requirement for the position was limited to 25 -35 yrs old and no more elderly ppl. They all worry now what kind of job that they can apply now. Is that  a special case  or  general phenomenons ONLY in China ?

Agism is a problem in most countries, but in China you have the added problem that you also need to be female and pretty too.
