Editor's Note: New generation of migrant workers, 10.3 percent of whom are college graduates, have become the main force of migrant workers, according to a 2017 report released by the National Bureau of Statistics.

While the first generation of migrant workers, who often did not have education or training, did menial jobs in cities and used their hard-earned money in improving their families' livelihood. The new generation not only wants to earn more, but also integrate into cities.

Here's a look at the lives of some new-generation workers in cities.

Born in 1989, the brothers from Southwest China's Guizhou province opened their own fitness studio in Xuchang city. "We will do the best as we can. The reason why we work so hard is to be better fitness instructors," said Zhang Hailong, who graduated from Guizhou University of Finance and Economics. [Photo/VCG]
