Speaking

I saw a news that 3 girls were holding hands and jump from the building in their neighbor in ChongQing. They study highschool. We don’t know why they want to ending their life, they are very young, 3 families break down. When I saw this news, I recalled a movie, this movie just show us that in Japan, many students always suicide and they holding hands. This movie just say about the students in Japan suicide together, for different kinds of suicide. Through this movie, you will know that many people’s lives, what ever they are workers, or they are students, they have a lot of pressure. If you can’t push out your pressure, maybe you will become very crazy.

About 9 years ago, when I first time travelled to HK, I saw an advertisement , they need to recruit an employee in 7-11, the salary about this job about 10,000. I saw a statistics several days ago, that shows Shanghai price is number 1 in the world, higher than NY. Many people work like HK, many foreigner companies, their employees finish work at 8-9 o’clock. For IT companies, they have only 2 days off for the month. My husband’s brother has a higher salary, more than millions a year and he have dividend, he is an AI designer. He always come back to home 11-12 o’clock and then he need to arrive office at 9 o’clock. If lucky, he can have 2 days for rest for a month. These 2 days, he needs to work at home. He designs AI program, this industry very cruel. The department will get two teams to do the same project, the leader will compare the result, the loser will fired.
