Comments on NetEase:
Is China’s Spring Festival [Chinese New Year] taken so seriously [have as much importance attached to it by these workers]? We don’t even get [Chinese] New Year’s Eve off, so we can only celebrate foreign holidays, for the children!
Have you seen foreign countries’ selling things to China during Spring Festival?
China, all it can do is seize this kind of low-profit margin manufacturing. The ground is covered in red paint, I worry for the health of the workers, but how else can he feed his family? If he doesn’t do it, then Vietnam and India will come and take our jobs.
The backbone of the Chinese economy.
Zhejiang people really are capable of making any sort of money! Chinese people [seem to be] even more excited about celebrating Christmas than foreigners.
I used in work in a trading company, and we specialized in foreign holiday gift orders! Many of the factories are located in Zhejiang and Jiangsu.
Christmas is a foreign holiday, so why are Chinese people celebrating it! What’s wrong with you!
The success of cultural invasion, nowadays celebrating foreign holidays begins in kindergarten, like Easter, Thanksgiving, etc. Sigh, our economy and culture are completely defeated.
Bring joy to foreigners, leave pollution to ourselves!
An all business and no culture Chinese Christmas.
Those who celebrate Christmas don’t make Christmas trees, while those who don’t celebrate Christmas make Christmas trees, just for a bit of money, and as they bring joy to the West, they also leave pollution to their descednents. Disgusting…
