Summary of 996icu/996.ICU

The 996.ICU repository on GitHub is a non-profit movement initiated by tech workers in China. It began in response to the "996" working hour system that has become prevalent in many Chinese companies, including some tech giants. The "996" schedule refers to an expectation of working from 9am to 9pm, 6 days a week.

The 996.ICU repository includes a blacklist of companies that enforce the 996 work schedule, as well as a list of companies that respect labor rights. It also houses an "anti-996" license that developers can use in their projects to prevent the software from being used by companies that do not comply with labor standards.

Here's how the repository is described in its README:

The name 996.ICU refers to "Work by '996', sick in ICU", an ironic saying among Chinese developers, which means that by following the "996" work schedule, you are risking yourself getting into the Intensive Care Unit.

Since its creation in March 2019, the repository has sparked a nationwide discussion on work-life balance and labor rights in China. It has also gained international attention for its stance against overwork in the tech industry.

The 996.ICU repository represents the collective voice of Chinese tech workers advocating for their rights to fair work hours and conditions. It is one of the most starred repositories on GitHub, indicating the widespread support and attention this issue has received.
