The job market may look bad here, but if you’re in China, and you happen to be white, all you need is a suit and tie. An increasing number of Chinese companies are willing to pay any price to have a few fair-skinned faux employees walking around. From the article: “‘Face, we say in China, is more important than life itself,’ said Zhang Haihua, author of Think Like Chinese. ‘Because Western countries are so developed, people think they are more well off, so people think that if a company can hire foreigners, it must have a lot of money and have very important connections overseas. So when they really want to impress someone, they may roll out a foreigner.’ Or rent one.”
