A couple of years ago, I spent several weeks in China.
It was a busy and fascinating time, and the job market there has never been better.
But in the past couple of weeks, things have changed dramatically.
I had been living in a small apartment in the Beijing suburb of Jingdezhen.
The rent was just under US$1,000 per month, which I found very affordable.
It was my first real apartment outside of the capital and my first time living in China, and I had spent a few months in Singapore as a student.
Since I’d never been to China before, I was excited to start learning Chinese.
As I was browsing through my apartment, I saw a job advertisement that seemed quite attractive.
My new boss was asking me to help out with the construction of a small new office building, and after an hour-long interview, I signed on.
Then, on Monday morning, the first thing I noticed was that the building was almost empty.
A few of the construction workers had moved out for the day, leaving behind a couple of hundred empty desks.
For most people, the office would be a big hit when they first move in.
But for me, it was a strange feeling, and a bit worrying.
There were only four workers at the office, and they all seemed to be working in the same areas.
At least for the time being, the only construction workers at Jingdezhan were working on the first floor.
This was an obvious sign that the new building was under-designed and under-funded.
Workers on the second floor had been moved to a temporary temporary construction site in the neighboring city of Chongqing.
With the office now under construction, I thought about the possibility that it might take a couple more months for the office to be complete.
What if the first-floor construction workers were still around?
If so, it could take some time to complete the work and turn Jingdeyang into a fully-fledged office.
So, I started to think about what I could do to help the construction work at Jingdaangan.
One of the biggest challenges in construction is finding the right workforce to do the work.
According to the Chinese Labor Department, China is the largest construction country in the world.
Every year, China produces around a billion new construction jobs, making it the fourth largest construction market in the United States.
China is home to some of the most densely populated cities in the developed world.
With a large population of people, there is plenty of room for mistakes in construction work.
A recent case of a Chinese worker working in Japan’s Tokyo airport was a perfect example.
In 2015, a Chinese construction company was involved in a massive fire in Tokyo, which destroyed over 600,000 buildings and displaced thousands of people.
Two weeks later, a similar fire occurred in Chongqings office building.
Both fires occurred in the area where the new construction site was located, and both involved construction workers on the same floor.
The Chongqans building was one of those that had been constructed in the middle of the night.
Luckily, it had been set up on the third floor.
This meant that all the workers on that floor were working at night, and all the other workers were working in daylight.
However, it did mean that there was still a lot of work to be done.
When I visited Jingdejiang in the morning, I asked the construction crew on the building floor if they could take a look around the building.
They were all happy to oblige, and headed into the middle-floor office.
There were no visible signs of the fire, and no smoke alarms.
Inside the office was a massive mess of broken glass and broken furniture.
All of the broken pieces of furniture had been knocked over, and even the glass had been smashed.
Some of the pieces of broken furniture had even been smashed and bent into a twisted mess.
Even the walls were stained from the smoke.
On the second-floor, there were also some huge pieces of glass broken into smaller pieces.
By the time the workers got to the fourth-floor building, all of the glass was completely gone.
Just like the building, the construction had gone terribly wrong.
All that was left of the building were some pieces of unfinished walls, some broken glass, and some broken furniture that had fallen off the wall.
These were just the bare bones of what had happened to Jingdezenan, and there was no way for the workers to recover the pieces or to complete all of their work.
The workers at Chongqang had been instructed not to speak English, and it was hard to understand the conversation between the construction team and the Chinese construction workers.
While the workers
