Chinese Millionaire Still Work As Street Cleaner…

A “millionaire woman” from Wuhan City in Central China has spent the last 15 years working six days a week as a street cleaner in order to show her kids the value of a hard day’s work.
Yu Youzhen, a former vegetable farmer who made her fortune through real estate development, has been employed as a sanitation worker since selling her land to the state in 1998.

Though she owns 17 apartments and has the net worth of a millionaire, Yu insists on waking up every morning at 3 AM to work a job that pays a meager 1,420 yuan (~$230) a month.
Yu, who has become something like a celebrity in her homeland, told local reporters that she was motivated after witnessing many of her fellow former landowners squander their earnings on gambling and drugs.

Whether they want to or not, her kids are falling in line: Yu’s son is currently employed as a driver and earning just over 2,000 yuan (~$320) a month, while her daughter is an office worker with a 3,000 yuan-a-month (~$480) salary.
