China's headlong rush into the gaping maw of capitalism has made the country's workers the most stressed in the world, according to new research by consulting firm Regus.
80% of employees in China tend to work overtime, and only 1 in 3 Chinese workers are able to take paid vacations. This is due to China's collaborationist workers' unions, whose purpose is to protect employers from inconvenience, rather than fight for workers' rights. China may be an ostensibly communist state, but it desperately needs more socialism.

The current social security system in the country only makes the situation even worse. Individuals have to shoulder a huge burden because at this moment, the system for health care, education and welfare are far from perfect. "A lot of Chinese people are struggling to make a living," says Xia Xueluan, a sociology professor with Peking University. "And even death is not an escape from reality, as funeral service also costs huge," he joked.

Research carried out by medical journal the Lancet shows that 1 in 10 Chinese people have a mental disorder, and over 26 million Chinese suffer from depression. China tops the rankings for suicides, with over 110,000 people killing themselves every year.

Whose fault, how to improve?
It is not the fault of capitalism.

The law markers are also the bosses. How can the law protect the workers before employers?
The only legal work union's leaders are also the bosses. How can the work union protect the workers before employers?

So, we need to change a lot as Reform is going on.

Who elects your union leaders ?   It should be the workers.
