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 (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-society-punishment-idUSKCN1ND0MM). 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.
