China's employed population rose from 180 million in 1949 to 750 million in 2020, according to the white paper titled "China's Epic Journey from Poverty to Prosperity."
The employment structure has improved to the extent that 47.7 percent of the workforce are now employed in the tertiary sector, and 61.6 percent are working in cities.

The employed have seen their lawful rights and interests protected, their pay increased, and their incomes secured, it added.
