Day 99

So many cheap plastic toys and ornaments! How do we sell so many cheap plastic toys and ornaments?!?

I saw an MSNBC special on Wal-Mart a few weeks ago, and was informed that the Bratz dolls we sell for circa $15 would cost $60 if the materials and labor came form the USA. So now maybe you understand why Bentonville pushes suppliers to move production to China. Awesomely crappy Bratz doll for $14.89, or the same crappy doll made in Bryan, Ohio for $61.79?

Americans make their voices know with their wallets. We like shipping job to China because we can buy more crap that way. It makes everything cheaper, even if we lose of few (million) lousy jobs. And this isn't just Wal-Mart we're talking about. It's the retail industry in general. We're motherfuckers. Sure you lost your job, but look at all the cheap shit we've got because of your sacrifice. Don't you want to shop here?

And the sad thing is, most people say "YES!"
