Suicides are already the main cause of college deaths in Shanghai and it looks like the terrible job market is only going to make that statistic more prominent. According to the Telegraph, a wave of suicides have swept the nation as one in three of this year’s graduates ahve been unable to find a job. These recent out-of-college kids are being added to the 1.5 million from last year who are still out of work. While the government has been trying to combat the unemployment rate by offering positions as teachers or low-level officials in rural areas, those jobs hardly seem worth the four years of effort and tuition fees graduates racked up, especially if they did it to escape the countryside in the first place. It’s a tough situation to weather and the only suggestion we can think of is that maybe one more piece of China’s grand economic stimulus should be devoted to mental health helplines.
