    Abstract

    Sociological theory has it that status groups proximate to each other exchange members through reciprocal mobility. However, in the past few decades in China, despite the growing proximity or a leveling of social status between workers and peasants, reciprocal occupational mobility has not been achieved. Not until the last few years with the implementation of reforms in the urban economic structure was the situation changed. The Asian financial crisis, as a significant factor, has helped in shaping such social changes.
