Shanghai Residence
I was born in HuNan province, I went to the university in Suzhou. After my graduation from the university, I came to Shanghai to look for a job. It is very hard for a non-local people to get Shanghai residence. There are many strict rules that require you to reach the threshold. You need to twice than the average tax level constantly for 3 years, plus other condition, and you can wait for a year to get the Shanghai residence. Now my husband and my children have already got their Shanghai residence, I am asking my company to deal with this for me. Luckily, if everything goes well, I might get my Shanghai Residence next June.

For other people, if they don’t get SH residence, their children cannot go to public school. They need to go back to their hometown to take the university entrance exam when they are 18. Shanghai is such an international city, I think it’s unfair for non-local people to live in this city. We pay the same tax, we are also making economic contribution to this city.
