Is this the worst company to work in ever? In one of the most awful incidents, workers from a Chinese company were forced to crawl on the street after failing to reach their annual targets, sparking an outcry on the internet. The video which shows the staff crawling in all fours as they made their way through the busy traffic of Tengzhou on Tuesday has gone viral.
Pedestrians and local reports state that all the staffs of the crawling workers were female who sold beauty products, reported. The group of humiliated-workers can be seen leading by a male supervisor, who was walking while holding a large flag that bore the name of the firm.

Two other workers can also be seen walking alongside the group while filming the extreme punishment.
According to reports, the police soon arrived at the scene after being informed of the group's behaviour who then demanded the leader of the team stop the punishment before issuing him a verbal warning.
Footage of the humiliating punishment has sparked outrage all over with criticising the firm for its abuse.
One typical comment reads: 'Employees are humans as well. To give them such a disrespectful punishment means the boss is not a sensible person.'
The comment continues: 'It's the same for those employees too. How come they are still working in such a company?'
Admits all the outrages, some internet users suspect that the company wanted to use the penalty to advertise itself in the city with the large flag. It is now reported that the company has been ordered to halt business and look back at the humiliation they have caused the workers and the people alike.
