(p.150) 5 Urban Residents and Migrant Workers in Public Life
The Teahouse under Socialism

This chapter focuses on the various types of teahouse patron and those who made a living in and associated with the teahouse, especially migrant workers. With the post-Mao reforms and weakening of state control, teahouses could exist in a relatively more open social environment, serving all levels and all kinds of customers across the social spectrum regardless of outward status, class, gender, and age; in particular they became the domain of the retired and elderly. Furthermore, as local markets strengthened and management practices improved, people once again began to earn a living in teahouses.
