Employee of The Year: Chinese Journalist Interrupts Her Wedding to Cover an Earthquake

Just when you thought you had made the ultimate sacrifice for your job by skipping lunch, someone like Chen Ying, a news reporter in China, goes and ditches her own wedding to cover a massive earthquake that hit the city of Ya’an.

In her wedding dress, no less.

Here at PayScale, we are constantly trying to help give our readers advice on how they can stand out to their bosses. This example is pretty extreme, but we would like to give Chen Ying a round of applause. Her decisive action probably bodes really well for her next performance review. We would recommend that she shows this video again when it comes time to negotiate her salary.
