This boss is finished! His good intention has ruined the name of his company! Such low behavior, how did he come up with something like this?! What would the customers feel if they saw this!
One look and you can tell this company’s culture is the same as that of a multilevel marketing scheme, a bunch of nao can~~!
This is not challenging their resilience to pressure, this is making people completely give up their bottom line as a human being. In the end, arriving at the edge where one becomes so low that one becomes invincible!

I’d just quit. To sell one’s dignity only for that little money?! To crawl like a dog in public?
This is reality. Some people have to put up with all kinds of unfairness and humiliations for survival.
This boss is clearly fucking with his employees. You think yourself so high and mighty just because you’re a boss? If you’re so great, how come you didn’t take the lead and crawl!
The boss is crazy!
腾讯临汾市网友 永恒: (responding to above)
This is the so-called one must be crazy before one can be successful!
If it was me, I’d just quit. This is simply humiliating human dignity.
Want to be famous! Can’t just ignore the employees’ dignity, right? Did the boss get on his knees?

The boss is truly a worthless piece of shit. This is simply not treating one’s employees as human beings. It’s clear that his employees only have two legs, yet they’re used as if they have four legs, just what is the meaning of this?
“Challenge their resilience to pressure course”? In other words, it’s just putting down your dignity, and crawling around like a dog!
It’s only been a few days since the May 1st International Labor Day, where is the laborers’ dignity???
To put on such an employee-humiliating scene right at the Liberation Monument is so evil! Have they been liberated?
Every time when I see news like this, I feel as if we’ve returned to the extremely evil Old Society [feudal China era]. The Chinese government should heavily punish the boss of this company!
This reminds me of multi-level marketing schemes. Nowadays, many hotels, hair salons, and other similar businesses here where I am are doing this kind of thing. Every morning before work, [the employees] stand in front of the storefront to receive education [lectures, pep talks], then shout out slogans. It’s said that this came from Japan. Chinese people only know how to learn these superficial things. Pathetic.
There was a time when it was quite good, but now it’s a mess again. Just what kind of society is this?
China needs slaves right now, it has nothing to do with human dignity.
This is one of the steps towards making employees into slaves–—in the eyes of the boss, employees are simply slaves.
