Abstract:
In China's development, a continuous and irreversible trend has emerged in rural areas—the one-way flow of rural labor to urban areas. Besides, it is difficult for those who have left to return to their hometowns. Through a questionnaire survey of rural migrant workers in Ankang City, Shaanxi Province, we explore the gap between migrant workers and rural workers in terms of employment and entrepreneurship and analyze what affects the motivation to return to rural areas such as the inequality of resources between urban and rural areas, the choice of employment industry, and makes suggestions for future development. The result helps find the solution of the problem of rural entrepreneurship.

Keywords:  Difficulty in returning to hometown, Hollowing out of villages, Employment of migrant workers, Questionnaire survey, Rural predicament
