Time Out Shanghai: Inside Job

Time Out Shanghai: Inside Job

Paul tried every job in China. He drove a train full of nervous passengers despite failing every test at subway driver school. He received numerous marriage proposals while working as a matchmaker. And as a rat catcher he came face-to-face with sights so stomach-turning to be worthy of consideration as a weight-loss program. He’s worked as an assembly line worker, acupuncturist, sidewalk barber, brewmaster, chiropractor, tailor, food testing panelist, stuntman, and many more.
