A yawn too far
BEIJING: Five Chinese officials have been suspended after being spotted sleeping or reading newspapers during a video conference on laziness at work, state media reported yesterday.
The officials, all high-level workers at tax bureaus in the northern province of Shanxi, were supposed to be pushing better work discipline at the meeting, the report said.
The campaign aims at reminding officials they cannot leave their posts, play games, or “attend recreational activities” during office hours, the report added. – Reuters
