“Wasteful Spending”; Chinese Hospital Bans Employees From Buying The New iPhone

A hospital in China, has reportedly banned its employees from purchasing the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7plus. On Tuesday, a reader reportedly posted on public forums that their workplace, a hospital, implemented “strange” new rules restricting employees from purchasing Apple’s newest iPhone model.

In the post, the reader said anyone caught violating this rule would be let go from the hospital. An original copy of the notification sent to all employees reads,

“At a time when the People’s Republic of China celebrates its 67th anniversary, this institution advocates prudence and diligence, wishing to put an end to luxurious and wasteful spending.” The notification goes on to officially prohibit buying the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus models, warning that violators will be terminated.
