Card game manufacturer Cards Against Humanity has given its Chinese factory workers a week of paid leave as part of the company’s “Eight Sensible Gifts for Hanukkah” campaign.
Customers paid US$15 to receive eight mystery gifts – one of them was a break for the employees at their Chinese printer firm.
“The printer didn’t have any formal procedures for paid vacations, so we bought 100% of the factory’s capacity and paid them to produce nothing for a week, giving the people who make Cards Against Humanity an unexpected chance to visit family or do whatever they pleased,” the company said.
Paid vacation is rare in China – however, the Chicago-based company said that it is “important to us to go above and beyond our obligation to the workers who make our game.”
Fouded in 2011, Cards Against Humanity is a fill-in-the-blank card game where players compete to construct political incorrect answers.
