People like Keith Rabois wish every US company would do this too. We need to stop the sociopaths from dictating work/life (im)balance or we will continue to exacerbate the global mental health crisis. Humans are not robots, and you can't even be productive at work without rest.

Re-read thoughts from 2 very diff investors, one with a balanced and healthy view of work and life and the other who lauds China and a culture of 24/7 workaholism. But plz more people come into my mentions & worship at this strange alter. Get some help.

Wait you're saying it's not sustainable to ask people to spend *their entire lives* (9am-9pm, 6 days/week) @ office working? No one should ever see kids/spouses/pets right? You will definitely die wishing you worked harder to ship that extra mobile game.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/29/technology/china-996-jack-ma.html 

This story is related to the above thread. Silicon Valley tech is more often than not an unhealthy, sociopathic place. Exactly what a lot of (save for the few sane) VCs here relish in.  https://www.kqed.org/perspectives/201601139049/done-with-silicon-valley
