Number 10: Bai Xinku (Mr. Worked for Nothing), unemployed worker; age: 39; monthly income: 200 RMB.

Reason for choice: Since Mr. Bai became unemployed, his livehood was really in trouble. Fortunately his wife was so understanding of the situation and divorced him quickly, and took his son away. Therefore after Mr. Bai’s hard labor as a coolie on the street everyday, he can even make 200 Yuan income per month. His life is happy again.

Number 8: Zhu Bajie (Sister Groveling Pig), garbage picker; age: 60; monthly income 60-70 RMB.

Reason for choice: Miss Zhu’s situation is not new this year, last year she only possessed one trash can. This year, she already has three trash cans at her disposal. She even has a Bank Saving of 200 Yuan at the end of this year. Next year she is most likely off our list.

Number 1, Soccer player Jiao Taichou (Mr. Stinky Feet). Age 24, Monthly income: – 50,000 RMB.

Reason for choice: One would think that Mr. Jiao should be a strong contender for Forbes 200 richest list. However, only after sports circle insider Mr. Hao Dapao (Big Mouth) revealed this information that his situation is even worse than migrant workers. After he paid for drinking in bars, prostitutes, medical fee for other players that he beat up, his monthly debt is at least 50,000 Yuan. So Mr. Jiao is this year’s truly black horse, even passed Mr. Migrant Worker and made to the top of our list. Congratulations.
