Most of the village's wealth is owned by the 2,000 original families. Over 25,000 migrant workers, half of the village's population, earn monthly salaries but they do not share in the village's wealth. Even the villas and cars of the residents from the original Huaxi village are in fact collective, and villagers do not have property rights. Once a villager leaves, he or she loses everything.
