Working Overtime Becomes Normal in China

Everyone knows that Chinese white-collars work overtime, but to what extent? Recently, a study by Zhaopin, one of China’s largest online headhunters, has given us a peek at the truth.

About 81.95% employees work overtime every week, 77.61% of whom do it for free. 24.70% of them even work overtime every day without being paid. The average overtime is 6.45h per week. In 2016, Chinese mobile transportation platform DiDi published a ranking of the companies with the most overtime, the top 3 being JD, Tencent and 58Ganji. The average time of leaving the office at JD was 23:16. DiDi has stopped publishing this ranking, possibly due to PR pressures from such companies.

Antitrust Investigation Against Alibaba – Bluff or Just a Start?

In late December 2020, China’s State Administration for Market Regulation announced that they have launched an antitrust investigation against Chinese tech giant Alibaba, whose “pick one” policy has received multiple complaints from its competitors over the years.

The “Pick one” policy dates back to 2013 when Alibaba forced online-shop owners to choose only one place to run their business: either they close their shops on Tmall and Taobao, Alibaba’s own platforms, or they exit all other platforms, especially JD, the second biggest platform at that time.
