Well, not if you want any semblance of a normal life. Unfortunately Chinese bosses expect to work you to the bone from morning til night, demand unflinching loyalty in the face of adversity - and yet pay a tiny pittance of the profits they earn. Don't expect vacations or rest days either since their companies seem to run all-year round ( except maybe a few days for the annual Spring Festival ). Unlike the more enlightened bosses these days, they expect nothing short of indentured slavery.
Boss : Why are you not at work?
Worker : Boss, I broke my leg this morning at the factory.
Boss : How careless! But that is not a valid excuse!
Worker : But I can't walk!
Boss : Bah! I will give you lighter duties. Come, grab a cane and follow me! Hobble as fast as you can, we have no time to waste!
Come to think about it, make that any boss you'd find in the Far East - so you can count the Japanese and the Koreans in that unholy brethren of evil bosses.
Because they themselves put in the extra time at work, they expect everyone else to share their unwavering dedication! As Big Bicep Barry ( who works for the family firm as well ) once said, even their own chidren aren't exempt from this draconian rule.
Nurse : There's a blackout in the operating theatre.
Paul : Yahoo! No cases today.
Nurse : But the bosses are forcing us to remain here!
Paul : In the dark?
Nurse : Yes! At the front counter!
Paul : What the hell for?
Nurse : And the bosses tell us we can't go online or talk either! Damn the bosses!
Paul : So you're sitting quietly in the dark?
Nurse : What else can we do?
Paul : Sit together and sing songs of solidarity?
The poor nurses! Not hard to envision those dark unenlightened Victorian days where thousands slaved away in the dark, dank factories to service the Empire! So now every time I think of a Chinese boss, I imagine my nurses huddling in the dark waiting :)
Small wonder they find it hard to retain any staff.
