This article examines whether creative workers are happier in Chinese cities and the influence of work, lifestyle, and amenities on urban well-being. The results indicate that they are are indeed happier in post-Socialist, or service-sector oriented, cities. However, creative work does not explain their happiness. However, creative work is more likely to explain creative-class happiness in mining cities. Further, this study founds that blue-collar workers report a higher level of happiness in those settings with less pronounced inter- and intra-class distinctions at the workplace—in those places where power and status are more evenly distributed
