If your work environment’s got you down, you might need some cheerleaders — and not necessarily in the form of a more encouraging boss.
According to China.org.cn’s Trending In China, internet companies “across China” are hiring attractive young women as “programming cheerleaders” in order to create more fun at work for their employees.
