In fact, as early as many years ago, although there is no “lie flat” concept, but there are many young people have a similar idea. Fleeing the north, returning home and living a Buddhist life has become the choice of more and more people. For this phenomenon, many experts, scholars and entrepreneurs are complaining that they have given up the struggle at a young age, who will take care of the future of the country?

But the fact is that, no matter how much the outside world is criticized, the treatment of working people has really changed. With the phrase “996 is a blessing”, more and more large factories began to take this system for granted, and the name “to give young people more opportunities”, and even “715 The “715” is no longer an example. And then to today’s internal volume, people’s work pressure is rising, treatment really got the same time to improve? Obviously not, otherwise there will not be more and more young people choose to lie flat.

Programmers, is undoubtedly the most direct “victims”. As early as before similar news, this industry has been the hardest hit by overtime, but for life considerations, but also have to grit their teeth and accept, almost with their own bodies for wealth.

Because of this, Cai Jingxian was not able to enter the computer science major as he had hoped during the college entrance examination, and had to use his spare time to study computer knowledge on his own. Without professional tutoring, Cai Jingxian had to look up books to solve the problems he encountered, but it also laid a good foundation for future research.

After graduating from university, Cai Jing now joined Ali work, became a common programmer. At that time, Ali was just starting out, and it was not a bright spot among the Internet companies in China. In 2003, Jack Ma found Cai Jingxian, who had been knocking code for 3 years, and took out a plain English contract, telling Cai Jingxian to do a secret project. After getting the contract, Cai Jingxian did not read it carefully, but just asked, “Is it still writing code?” After getting an affirmative answer, Cai Jingxian signed his name.
