China is obviously in favor of migrant workers going to a new city to work for companies like Foxconn. But what is the rationale for these restrictions? China seems to make it deliberately more difficult to move to the city for work. Why?

What about housing? Properties are prohibitively expensive in the city for migrant workers to dream of owning. Without it, what can tie them down to the job and the city? Without stable work force, how do employers improve productivity in the long run except for relying on upgrading tools? Where would migrant workers end up after they are done with their services in the booming cities? Is there still a piece of land left back home for them to make a living at the end of the day?
