Trigger factors include the transformation and upgrading of industrial structure, the high liquidity of light industry asset, the exploitation of private and foreign companies, the participation of a large number of labors and the depriving of economic interests of the workers. Study found that the labor conflicts occur more often in abnormal production changes of manufacturing than in normal one, more in light industry than heavy one, more in private enterprises than other ones, more in large-scale enterprises than small-scale ones and more for economic requests of participants than for noneconomic ones.
