Li Baohua (Jiangxinese, Driver)
I've been in Shanghai for more than 10 years. Working makes my day and night.
Life pace is too fast and I don't have any social security.  I dare not say I contributed a lot to Shanghai's development, but I am working for this city. Life is unfair. I don't have a legal identity for me to find a decent job. I don't have time to take care of my kid and have to leave her with my aged parents.  Every year we have to move for several times because we rent to live and the Shanghai government is pulling down these old buildings.  I'm not satisfied with my present situation but have no way out.  I want to have a 'green card' and become a Shanghainese and that I will have two days free every week and can take my wife and kid out.  I like fishing very much. My greatest pain is I don't have a legal identity here.
