Default Having trouble finding a good paying job in America?

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE INJAPAN) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with GAS from Saudi Arabia and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB. At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (Made In Malaysia), Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE!!) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in.. AMERICA.....

"Globalization" = decimation of the U.S. manufacturing base, creating a hollow economy. Who came up with this boneheaded idea in the first place?

Now we are left with a service-based economy almost totally dependent on digital technology. Well guess what folks ... a couple of hefty solar flares and what's left of the U.S. economy is GONE! Poof ... just like that.

We need not fear natural disasters, 'cause we've created a worst-case scenario all by ourselves with no influence from Mama Nature. If there was ever a time to be self-sufficient, that time is now.

Oops, I just noticed this is the Humor thread. Guess we'll simply have to say the situation is so tragic it's funny.

Yep. This is what happens as a result of the 'chinese' water torture: Adverserial labor unions. The drip, drip, drip of more and more pay for less and less work has done it to us in spades. And there never was a real advantage, just an illusion.
