Major Historical migrations-

 

This article explains the one of the largest migrations in history. This migration was when many inland cities in China were poor, and did not have a high enough wage to keep their wages. Therefore, people left and worked at outer factories to gain money for them and their families. But now, due to large investments in governments, the inland cities became wealthier and were able to keep hold of their inhabitants.

 

This article contributes to major historical migrations because it talks about one of the largest migrations in history, and how many cities in China became much wealthier.
