Chinese staff forced to drink urine and eat roaches

Chinese investigators have found that a company was forcing employees to drink urine, eat insects and also flogging them for failure to meet sales targets.

Video of employees being slapped and made to crawl in the compound of the building where the company is located in Zunyi, Guizhou province have gone viral on the internet.

The video was viewed more than 500,000 times, as per Zunyi Yaowen via South China Morning Post last November 5, with screenshots of the video continuing to be spread after the original post was taken down.

Another stands topless as he is whipped by what looks like a large belt. The video also showed staff drinking cups of yellow liquid, which is reportedly urine.

You have to spend time in one place or another, all that time packing bags 3 days a week here, and 3 days a week there'. An insider said: "Demi is happy and healthy has done a complete 180 since she overdosed".

The managers previously punished low-achieving employees by forcing them to eat mustard or chilli, according to China News, but penalties have escalated since October to eating cockroaches and receiving beatings with a belt.

"If the sales goal has not been met by the end of this month, the team leader will have to eat three cockroaches for each failed sale", one text message read.

Others had to shave their heads or drink water from a toilet bowl and had their salaries withheld by a month, according to images and videos on Chinese social media cited by state media.

The company also allegedly threatened to severely reduce severance pay for anyone who quit. In August, labour activists that included students were arrested for supporting factory workers from welding machinery company Jasic International who were seeking to form a labour union after they were subjected to inhumane working conditions and later dismissed. Another manager will be jailed for five days.
