Henan Shangqiu mass transit company has paid wages with loose change for 12 consecutive years
It is reported that Henan Shangqiu Public Transportation Limited Company has for the past 12 years used the loose change from the fare collection box to pay workers’ wages. Because the number of people using transportation cards are too few and the bank isn’t willing to accept that much loose change, the company supplies and workers’ wages are all paid from this loose change. According to reports, things like people depositing damaged money, counterfeit money, game tokens, practice money [for bank workers] have happened, causing the company to lose several tens of thousands of yuan every year.
March 14, Henan province Shangqiu city, the municipal mass transit company’s staff are receiving their wages, and for the past 12 years have always been receiving [their wages in] small change.

Comments from NetEase:
In Shangqiu, I’m always full of respect for their public bus drivers, because their fanny packs are always look bulging.
These wages must feel really good in your hands [because it seems like a lot of money].
Motherfucking, each person must be getting several thousand? What kind of work unit is this public bus company? To have such good wages?
Are you retarded? The bundles every person is holding…is several thousand? Have some power of observation and common sense, okay?
This would be easy if it were given to me to deal with! Their bank dares to reject Renminbi? It doesn’t want to live? Banking regulations: Any person including commercial banks cannot refuse to accept RMB! Is loose money not RMB? Have the People’s Bank of China sue the local commercial bank!
Damaged money, counterfeit money, game tokens, practice money, here we can see the characters/quality of Henan people.
Being able to disburse wages this way continuously for 12 years is quite outrageous. How do the staff endure it?
Ever since I was small, my dream has been to have my pockets full of money and spend every day in the city bling’ing here and there.
Income not deposited in the bank, paying wages without going through the bank, what kind of conduct is this? Tax evasion!
Paying money is still better than owing wages! Look at the smiles on their faces and you know they don’t have high expectations/demand much.
