There are many Wuhan people working in coastal cities like Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, but most coastal cities locals do not go inland to work in Wuhan, Chengdu and Chongqing. Coastal cities are richer and more developed.

People from big cities usually do not move either.
In Shanghai etc. there may be a lot of people from Hubei province, but not so many from Wuhan City.

Great insight guys, cheers. It's like in Europe - cities like Split, Croatia engage me more. Same with Seattle in the USA. Cities with rich history but not well known globally, I guess that's why I wanted to find out about Wuhan.
