On Sunday night, a onetime employee of Chinese e-commerce giant Pinduodo (NASDAQ: PDD) — identified in media reports only by a surname, Wang — aired a set of grievances against the company in a video.
Wang also shared a photo of an ambulance that allegedly came for a worker who collapsed during their shift. That photo was posted on a Chinese job search site. This incident apparently occurred last Thursday, Jan. 7.
A colleague at Pinduoduo, who was not named in news reports about the incident, said Wang’s allegation was incorrect, and that the stricken employee had an enterospasm that necessitated hospitalization. The company backed this employee’s assertion.
