But working that long isn't even productive... You would think they wouldn't do that, worker's rights or no worker's rights.

2019-04-23 | Fed up with 72-hour, six-day working weeks, IT workers emit cries for help via GitHub repo • The Register

"The handful of unnamed techies said another reason it's necessary to stand with the protesting Chinese workers is that multinationals firms have a history of labor exploitation."

'"In response to these events, we, the workers of Microsoft and GitHub, support the 996.ICU movement and stand in solidarity with tech workers in China," they declared in a GitHub post on Monday. '

'A protest by tech employees in China over the expectation of 72-hour work weeks has this week attracted the support of 30 workers from Microsoft and its GitHub subsidiary. '

'The 30 Microsoft and GitHub workers who voiced their support for 996icu expressed concern Chinese authorities might try to pressure their employers to stifle their protest. '

'Back in 2013, GitHub was briefly blocked in China, but protests from the Chinese technical community forced authorities to relent. '
