China has always surprised or shocked the rest of the world with one thing after another, so it’s no wonder that it has the some of the weirdest jobs that we can think of. Some of these jobs will make you wish you were Chinese, or at least in China…. or at least not in IT. 😛
1. Some people get paid for watching upto 700 porn movies per week
Pornography is illegal in China, hence somebody needs to judge it. #logicfail #pornwin
2. Labor Camp prisoners often get employed by the government to play video games
This is called “gold farming”, where the employees build up credits for games like World of Warcraft which can be sold to other gamers later.
Okay dad, see you later; going to Chinese Labor Camp prison.
3. China has about 2 million people called “Public Opinion Analysts” to monitor the internet activities of its citizens
China is known for its strict internet policies, so these internet police make sure that nothing that can be harmful for the government goes online.
Pssst… China, get somebody to monitor your population and let India know about it as well.
4. The “50 Cent Party” gets paid to manipulate the opinion of Chinese netizens
These people guide conversations on the internet by posting favourable comments about the government and steering any conversation away from criticism. They get paid about 50 cents per comment, thus the nickname.

5. There is a huge field for paid protesters in China
Journalistic report says that some marchers get paid anywhere between $26 to $104 for turning up at pro-government assemblies.
6. Agitators are sometimes forced to go on state mandated free holidays
Imagine being the police who accompany them to luxury resorts!!
7. Hiring fake boyfriends or girlfriends is an in thing in China
Many people get hired to act as the ‘significant other’ of otherwise single people in family gatherings. #foreveralone 😛
8. White people have the opportunity of posing as businessmen in china and getting paid for it
All they need to do is show their faces in conferences, parties, ribbon-cutting ceremonies, or walk in and out of offices to give people the illusion that they are doing business here.
Apparently China is partially racist as well.
