The job schedule in many Chinese technological companies is from 9 am to 9 pm six days a week. During his speech Jack Ma said that this kind of schedule was a "huge blessing" for young people. He also noted that he worked 12 hours a day and he would never change that part of himself.
'If you do not work from 9 to 9 when you are young, then when else will you be able to work that much? Everyone in this world wants to be a success, everyone wants a better life, more respect. Let me ask you: if you do not put more time and effort in your work than others, then how are you going to succeed?', Jack Ma told Alibaba workers.
