Having a harsh boss can be a hassle, but this Chinese manager just took the tough boss thing to a completely new level by giving her five young employees the worst punishment ever.
She forced them to rip part their hard-earned cash — literally.
The incident took place in Jinan City. After the workers failed to meet their work standards, the Global electric store manager told them to tear apart 100 Yuan notes (approximately $15) from their salary as a punishment for not being able to distribute 100 flyers.
The brutal manager, only identified by her surname Leu, can be heard shouting in the video, telling the workers they will lose their jobs if they don’t obey her orders.
In an attempt to defend herself, Leu said she was only trying to motivate the employees to work harder next time.
However, her definition of motivation might be a little different from the rest of the world’s, because how can tearing anybody’s money motivate them?
The inconsiderate manager was slapped with a fine of 1,000 Yuan (approximately $688), along with a verbal warning by the local police officer as destroying money is illegal.
Leu went on to claim she only did this to teach her workers to value company resources.
Many social media users were outraged on the manager’s absurd treatment and wanted the store to fire her.
Well, that is for the store to decide but the manager should definitely get some counseling.

A reporter later visited the electrical appliance shop, which is currently shutdown for renovation and was informed the store is scheduled to open in April. It will give a sales target of distributing 65 million leaflets in just four days.
