[en] This chapter explores how rural-to-urban migrants were taught how to be workers in post-Mao China. As they learned to work in capitalist enterprises and to narrate their own life stories, they became national models. Their exploitation, however, challenged the legitimacy of a ruling party whose founding narratives continued to reject capitalist exploitation.
