I think you missed his point completely. I think he was trying to say people in China (like him) may have worked 'overtime' for personal convenience reasons (like ease of commuting), not because the company asked them to. He was commenting on 997.
Many people in my old Firm (in New York), worked after 8PM so they can get free dinner and a car service ride home.
Wow, pretty good deal for the company. Though one wonders how much work was actually done after 5...

The core module and cargo spacecraft for the new space station have passed factory verification. They are ready for the 'implementation' stage.

A new smart automated production line for small/micro satellites has entered trial production phase. It's capable of producing 240 satellites per year. The line automates many previously manual assembly processes and improves productivity and efficiency by more than 40%.

Mass production of cube sats? Even for china, this seems excessive, unless the idea is that every university in China is to have an ability to launch satellites into space for experiments. I'm guessing its more to get universities to "mass adopt" satellites as part of the recurring curricular vs as R&D.

240 sats doesn't seem much compared to what's being planned for Starlink

3x1 and 1x1 cubesats are prettt standard externally speaking, they might not be mass producing internals
