In a shocking incident, workers from a Chinese company were recently forced to crawl on a road as punishment for failing to hit their year-end targets. The staff were on all fours as they made their way through the busy traffic with a man walking ahead of them holding a flag.
The shocking activity was stopped by the police after a few minutes but videos and pictures quickly went viral on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
After the video was posted, the incident received huge backlash over the insensitive behaviour. While someone commented saying, “I hope these companies which trample on their workers’ dignity would be closed down.”
Some people also targeted the employees for silently accepting such kind of behaviour. People said, “How could they give up their dignity for money?”
But this is not the first time that workers in a Chinese company were subjected to humiliating punishments. Last year a similar footage surfaced showing workers getting slapped for performing poorly.
Looks like some companies really need to be schooled about how to deal with employees.
