In China, the gap between the poor and the wealthy continues to grow. Affluent citizens seek to acquire Western status symbols such as butlers and footmen. In doing so, they are providing possible employment for the thousands of young Chinese seeking jobs.

They can now enrol at the new branch of the International Butler Academy in Chengdu, Sichuan province.

The courses at the academy are exacting: successful graduates will have to know the function and placement of dozens of plates of different shapes and sizes, for example, as well as all the ‘ins and outs’ when it comes to formal wear. The knowledge will not come cheaply for most would-be butlers: courses at the academy cost between 27 000 yuan and 40 000 yuan. Each class is limited to 25 students.
