mployees are seen drinking cups of urine and whipping each other with belts in the latest clip from a Chinese workplace that you can watch whenever you start to think that your job is the absolute worst.
The video comes from a home renovation company in the Guizhou city of Zunyi. In addition to the piss drinking and belt whipping seen on tape, an employee revealed on Weibo that workers who did not meet their sales quotas were also given a wide assortment of other punishments, including having their head shaved, drinking toilet water, drinking vinegar, selling condoms on the street, eating wasabi, and eating cockroaches.
More specifically, a team leader was forced to eat three roaches for each order that his team fell short of the target.
At this point, you are probably wondering why the workers didn’t just quit. Well, it turns out that many of them hadn’t been paid in two months and were worried that if they did quit, they would be waving goodbye to all that money.
After the employee’s Weibo post went viral last week, police arrested three of the managers at the company. Two of them have been jailed for 10 days, the other for five. That oughta show ’em.
Unfortunately, being tortured and shamed by their employer is just a part of life for many Chinese workers. Over the summer, a group of incoming college students in Hubei province were taught a lesson about the harsh realities of the real world, forced to eat raw eggs and bitter gourd after failing to impress their boss during their first day on the job.
