oyees who get the “opportunity” to work according the “996” schedule are the luc
ky ones, because in many companies employees don’t get the chance to work long hours.
But the fact is, if employers do not meet the two essential requiremen

This is not the first time Norinco, the country’s largest arms producer for land weapons, has enter
