Xinhua: Not Many People Want to Have a Second Child

Xinhua recently reported on the willingness of Chinese people to have a second child. Although China abandoned its one child policy and, as of  January 1 of this year, began allowing a second child, many people do not want to have a econd child.

"According to a survey that was conducted, 70 to 80 percent of people said that they were willing to have a second child, but in reality only 30 percent actually did."

The obstacles for people to have a second child include companies’ unwillingness to hire women who have two children, the high financial cost, and the limited public resources for raising a child.
