 996 Work Schedule, a Blessing or a Curse?

The 996 work schedule, which means working 10 hours a day and six days a week, is gaining its popularity especially among some Internet companies.

People have mixed opinions towards such a work schedule: some considers it illegal and unreasonable, while others are in favor of it. For employees, the notorious work culture would make them toil and moil all the time, leaving them worn out and eventually taking a toll on their health. For employers, the working system might benefit them by encouraging employees to devote wholehearted to their work and following rigorous disciplines. For the whole society, the regime, if properly imposed, will be beneficial to the evolution of society. On the contrary, as a longer working time may lead to the decreasing need of labour, the working schedule will inevitably trigger the upgoing rate of unemployment.

Since such work schedule has gone viral among Internet firms, its of great necessity for those who are on the schedule to get accustomed to it. And my suggestions are as follows: to begin with, keep clear of working on the day off, which turns out to be an efficient way to release stress and may make them refocus easier. Furthermore,  as the old saying goes, health is the pre-condition of all work, and thus theyre supposed to pay special attention to their health and should make proper adjustments. Last but not least, on the condition that such regime has brought much trouble, sticking to it would not only be unwise but meaningless.

Personally speaking, Im far from willing to work on such a schedule for the intolerant pressure accumulated day by day. Whats more, the grueling work schedule will rob me of much time for relaxation when I could take up something else that Im interested in. Working hard to get a considerable salary certainly makes sense, but sometimes its the time spent with families that counts a lot.

Above all, nobody knows whether the 996 work schedule will be universally imposed. Therefore, its no use rejecting it blindly; instead, were expected to balance work and life.
