Workers Forced To Crawl On Hands And Knees For Missing Annual Targets

Work can be tough at the best of times, but when you throw targets into the mix it can quickly become the very worst of times.

Whereas you might just miss out on your bonus that month, a group of employees in China were forced to get on their hands and knees and crawl through the streets.

Yep, according to local reports, workers from a company in Tengzhou were ordered to crawl through busy traffic yesterday afternoon.

Shocked onlookers watched on as the line of employees slowly made their way through the streets as cars drove past them, down what appears to be a busy main road.

According to btime.com, all of the staff members seen crawling in the video were women who worked for a company which sells beauty products.

The line of workers can be seen being led down the street by a male employee who is carrying a large red flag, which allegedly has the name of the firm emblazoned across it.

Reports claim police turned up after having been informed of the incident, ordered the supervisor to put an end to the punishment and even gave him a verbal warning.

The shocking footage was shared on the video streaming site, Weibo, and has left viewers stunned by what they saw.

One person commented: "Employees are humans as well. To give them such a disrespectful punishment means the boss is not a sensible person."

They added: "It's the same for those employees too. How come they are still working in such a company?"

It's reported that the company involved was ordered to stop business and carry out 'self-reflection' exercises.

In Chinese business law, firms are forbidden from humiliating their staff and if they do so can be made to pay compensation to the worker.

However, according to the Mail, some companies have been caught publicly humiliating their staff - with some staff even forced to eat worms.

So just think, it could be worse.
