Whether or not an employee who doesn't stay late at work deserves to be criticized has become a hot topic on Chinese social media platforms like Sina Weibo. 

In theory, employees have a duty to go to work on time and then fulfill their job responsibilities, but getting off work at an appropriate time is also one of their rights so companies should adhere to proper ethical standards. 

One's contribution to a job should not be evaluated solely based on "times," but should be gauged by other factors such as efficiency and dedication. 

Being able to leave work according to schedule with a job well done is actually a type of capability. It means this person is scientific and plans his or her work content and time reasonably.

Recently, a private driver who drove into a railway station in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, to pick up customers has sparked public debate. 

Some netizens called the private driver "privileged" and accused him of having a "special background." 

Calling this privileged is unfair as the on-site pickup is part of a paid service launched by the railway station and all customers can book it. 

However, how far these services should be popularized should be further discussed to take into account passenger safety and also the capacity of the site. 

Also, setting good standards such as allowing disabled people to have priority for the service should also be discussed.

News of a regulation banning minors from karaokes went viral online recently. The regulation can be found in the latest Law of the People's Republic of China on Protection of Minors, but it still puzzled many people, as some netizens said "what's wrong if I take my children to karaoke to relax?" 

It is indeed true that minors are unlikely to be harmed when they are with close ones, but when they are alone, they always face unpredictable dangers. It is almost impossible to avoid such dangers of all time, therefore, minors should keep a distance from such an adult lifestyle.
