Living more than 10 km from the company, Ms. Yen Linh, 30 years old in Truc Hung commune, Truc Ninh district, and 10 other people rented a truck to transport mattresses home to ensure traffic safety.
During her 5 years of working, Linh said the company often gave away summer blankets, comforters, sheets, and pillows, but this year she and many colleagues were surprised to learn that there were mattresses in the Tet gift “bag”. To fit the family’s bed, she registered for a mattress measuring 2 m x 2.2 m.
