    How Does the Quality of Education Affect the Employment Quality of Secondary Vocational School Graduates?

    Secondary education is an important stage for individuals to acquire the skills needed in the labor market. In recent years, the trend of pursuing higher education after secondary vocational education has weakened the relationship between the two. As an important stage for the cultivation of skills among secondary vocational education students, the influence of secondary education on the employment quality of secondary vocational school graduates has not received sufficient attention. An analysis of a sample survey of graduates from 10 schools participating in the “Winning the Future” Phase II project in 2023 found that cognitive abilities, non-cognitive abilities, and skills all promote high-quality employment for secondary vocational school graduates to varying degrees. Further analysis indicates that students with excellent academic performance and personality traits such as openness, extroversion, and agreeableness are more likely to achieve high job satisfaction, while skill certificates and general skills help secondary vocational school graduates obtain jobs matching their qualifications. Future development in vocational education should focus on the influence of secondary education on secondary vocational school students to help graduates achieve high-quality employment.

    The Application of Essential Facilities Doctrine in Antitrust Regulation of IP Rights

    The State Administration for Market Regulation has referred to the concept of "essential facilities" in two regulations, and some courts have utilized the essential facilities doctrine in their judgments to recognize a defendant's refusal to deal as an illegal act of monopolization. As a doctrine originally applicable only to tangible properties in the United States, the essential facilities doctrine has gradually evolved through case law to be applied in the context of intellectual property (IP) rights. Nevertheless, there remains significant controversy in China and other jurisdictions as to whether the essential facilities doctrine can be extended to IP rights. Given the fundamental differences between intangible and tangible properties, as well as the core mechanisms of IP laws, greater caution and limits must be exercised when applying the essential facilities doctrine to IP. Specifically, (1) compulsory licensing should only be implemented when the IP in question is deemed an essential facility; (2) Article 7 of the Provisions on the Prohibition of the Abuse of Intellectual Property to Eliminate or Restrict Competition should be interpreted as "harm the competition in the secondary market"; and (3) in cases involving compulsory licensing, the court should examine whether such licensing would have an unreasonable adverse impact on the rights holder.

    Migrants’ Subjective Well-being in Big Cities of China: Based on Self-rating Social Status and Social Integration

    Promoting subject well-being of migrants could give full play to the advantages of talent's resource. Social position and social inclusion of migrants could be the key to pursue a people-centered, new type of urbanization and bring about rural migrants’ settling in cities. There is a lack of studies focusing on social comparison and social inclusion of migrants with the point of geographical features. Using the data collected from China Migrants Dynamic Survey in 2014, the relations among object socioeconomic status and self-rating social status as well as subject well-being of migrants in one municipal district and seven prefecture-level cities of China was examined by adopting multilevel linear regression model, which includes both mediating variables and moderating variables. Several conclusions are drawn as follows: 1) Migrants’ subjective well-being is affected by their objective socioeconomic status. Whilst migrants’ comparing themselves with local relatives and colleagues, as we call it self-rating social status, plays a part in mediating relations between object socioeconomic status and subject well-being, especially when the object socioeconomic status refers to migrants’ household monthly income, certain types of occupations (including civil servants, clerks and the self-rated) and homeowners in the host city. 2) When compared their socioeconomic status with locals in the host cities, including economic status and respect for themselves, the deeper the migrants are merging into cities and social networks, the weaker the relationship between self-rating social status and subjective well-being will be. In other words, social inclusion among migrants do negatively regulates the relations above. 3) However, there is no evidence that the higher the acceptance degree of local residents in host cities to migrants, the deeper the impact of the respect for migrants on subjective well-being will be. Obviously, the acceptance degree of local residents could not significantly moderate the relations between respect for migrants and their subject well-being. Based on the above research conclusions, this paper suggests that for building a harmonious society and improving the quality of urbanization, equal treatment of migrants and locals should be identified and dealt with. Furthermore, Therefore, we must speed up migrants to blend into the society in the cities.
