Speaking

I think working overtime is normal for me. First because I’m alone. I don’t need to take care of my family. And second I think if you have lots of things then maybe can prove you are very important in this family. But I don’t like the culture like if you have more power you need to do more things and some people have less power and they do less things. I hate that because I think people who have strong power or less power are the same. If you have strong power you can earn more money but if you have less power maybe you should find other job suits for you. I saw lots of people who had less power and they want the strong power people will help them to do their job. And about 996 I think 45 years old beforeI can accept that but if I’m over 45 years old I will find an easy job.

And second I think if you have lots of things to do then maybe this can prove you are very important in this company. But I don’t like this culture where if you have more power you need to do more things, and if you have less power, then you do less things. I hate that because I think people who have a lot of power and those who have less power are the same. If you have a lot of power you can earn more money but if you have less power maybe you should find another job that is more suitable for you. I saw lots of people who had less power and they wanted the more powerful people to help them do their job. And about 996, I think I’m under 45 years old, I can accept that, but if I was over 45 years old I would find an easy job.
