||With the global competition and digital technology, human capital has become the key point to economic development. The importance of domain-specific expertise and talent hunting in different country make the trend of transnational labor movement. Moreover, the popularization of higher education, the imbalance between supply and demand in the labor market and the transformation of industrial structure have all caused a strong impact on the domestic employment market. Many factors make the unemployed go abroad to seek the job opportunities for career development. Our government is not only concerned about the issue of labor migration but also the crisis of brain drain. In order to know what the determinant factors of the phenomenon are, this article tried to do some discussion about labor migration. This study discusses the factors that affect labor migration, and analyzes that workers with certain characteristics in a specific environment are more likely to be willing to migrate. To explore whether those who have the characteristics of the research results are the key labor that we can′t afford to lose. Based on the factors affecting labor migration, a binary logistic regression model is established to analyze the characteristics of labor with transnational migration. According to the statistic outcomes, several significant results can be obtained. Men who are unmarried are more likely to go abroad to work. In addition, with the rise of the consciousness of gender equality, the gender ratio of overseas employment is gradually approaching. The higher the age, working years or job satisfaction, the lower the willingness to work overseas. Education level, salary income and occupational attribute will affect the opportunity and willingness to work overseas due to the human capital. Labor with key technologies not only has international competitiveness but also can promote the industrial transformation. Realizing the characteristics of labor can focus on retention strategies, reducing the push to move overseas and turning it into a pull to stay, thereby easing the brain drain crisis.|
