A Good Job

So you heard about the suicides in the Longhua Foxconn factory near Shenzhen in China and you have vowed not to buy anything else from Apple until they fix this? Is that about the size of it? I don’t have an answer. To me it sounds like the auto industry here in the States back in the twenties and thirties. How about we ship Andy Stern over there?

Now Foxconn is going to build a new factory that will employ 200,000 workers and produce 200,000 i-phones and i-pads a day. Won’t that be great for the economy. It certainly will…in China where they are building it. Have you had enough good news yet?

Apparently these jobs are not too bad for China. There doesn’t seem to be any shortage of applicants to replace the dead ones. Perhaps because the Ministry of Propaganda doesn’t let the truth out?

Monthly pay is $156.00 and it is scheduled to go up this month to $202.80. Now for that kind of scratch do you think that maybe some workers are offing other workers so their relatives can get in? I don’t know, just a thought. Probably not since even in China that wage sucks. The workers can’t even afford the cheap Chinese crap they build. They have to look at even cheaper knock-offs (I wonder if they’re from America?).

So, as you park your KIA and go in and turn on your Samsung TV and heat up some Mexican vegetables and Brazilian beef in your Sanyo microwave you can rest assured that I am quite certain none of those products were produced in this fashion.
