Get your job back --- get divorce

Former employees of a state-run oilfield in north China are jumping through a strange hoop to get their jobs back -- they are filing for divorce.

"Following these rules, laid-off employees just have to have a divorce certificate and they are qualified for re-employment," former oilfield worker Wang Ying was quoted as saying.

"To qualify to get my job back, I had to divorce my husband of 10 years, even though we have a wonderful relationship."
