Chinese man gets paid to sleep on the job

Meet the man who gets paid to sleep on the job...

Lee Jia, 27, earns 10,000 renminbi every month just to test the comfort levels at hotel rooms. For most of us sleeping at office is the stuff dreams are made of, but a Chinese man, who only sleeps during his working hours, still gets paid for it. His other activities include checking out the scent of the rooms, the cleanliness, the brand of toiletries and the type of TV programmes available. However, according to a Chinese daily, Jia finds just sleeping in hotel rooms a bit more stressful at times than one might have thought. Lee, who loves travelling, said that he is paid to observe his surroundings and then write a review of the hotel and its facilities on his blog.

"You need to be highly focused and articulate to observe every detail in order to produce a comprehensive report," Star Online quoted him as saying.
