I wonder why the media only brings up such news from china. As if china is the only country were people work long shifts or every day of the week.
It also does happens in the USA, just think about the criticisms from the spouses of Electronic Arts employees. Those had to work up to 100 hours a week. Seven days a week from 9am to 10pm or even later and only with some luck got the saturday evening off.
And that's more or less normal in the video games industry, those people really do work their asses off.

Of course it's bad but then again you have to wonder, how that could be changed. If those people work normal shifts, the prices of the products would go up and customers will be outraged because they're so stingy these days.

Anglo american empire winning in ww2 was a nightmare for the whole world, and it was just a con.
