You Can Take This Job and–!

It’s not so bad… if you’re a lizard.

You think you’ve got a bad job? Hah. You’ve got to go to Red China to find out what a bad job really is.

A Chinese home renovation company “punishes” workers–remember, this is an official Workers’ Paradise–for unsatisfactory performance by making them drink urine and eat cockroaches… or get whipped with a belt… or have your head shaved… or be made to drink toilet water… or get docked a whole month’s wages ( These punishments are executed in front of the other employees. Keeps ’em on their toes, I guess.

Oddly enough, very few people quit after these things are done to them. Maybe in China jobs are that hard to come by. Or maybe all the other jobs are worse. The Reuters news story doesn’t tell us. They just seem to “accept their fate.”

This is the Red China whose culture and form of government American liberals wish to emulate. I can just see Joe Biden grinning as he watches some poor peon try to scarf down a handful of roaches. Tom Friedman’s out front selling tickets.

    1. Then you can probably get buy with American anoles (like the one in the picture), if you don’t mind letting them hunt around the house.

  1. The managers are punished for “humiliating” others – by humiliating them! So democratic of them. It’s like a sci-fi dystopian future, except it’s real, and it’s now. Can we really believe these slaves show “no signs of unhappiness”? I’d like to know how old they were when their nightmare began. We should change the color of the GOP from red to…?

    1. That’s it in a nutshell; it’s like a dystopian Sci Fi plot come to life in the real world.

  2. The workers can’t quit. In a Communist state, the only employer is the State.

    I once tried in vain to explain this to someone I knew who simultaneously (a) complained about the bureaucracy in the government agency where he worked and (b) proclaimed his admiration for socialism.

  3. I am sure all these workers have been trained in the importance of the collective being so much more important than the individual. I’ve read where if someone falls off a ferry crossing a large river in China no effort is made to help them – just another insignificant cog in the machine.
