China's changing work landscape

What a new generation seeking higher pay and better conditions could mean for growth.

    China has long been known as the factory floor of the world, with its huge pool of low-waged workers.

    But a new generation of workers is changing that landscape, demanding higher pay and better working conditions.

    Workers at a Honda plant in southern China successfully staged a pay strike recently, in a possible sign of things to come for the economy.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett examines what that might mean for the country's future growth.
