Thirty two bucks a day. Not even close to US minimum wage.

Why is he wrapping books? Or, more accurately, putting books in bags and taping them closed?

Because that's what the customer ordered.

In Shenzen, unless I am out of date, the Minimum Wage is about $236/month. This is one of the higher minimum wage settings. This guy makes about $640 bucks, at that rate. Not a huge salary, but relative to book wrapping he's probably doing okay.

And you dont know their cost of living... i have a supplier from china that says the only real issue they have is other people trying to push their way of life on workers there...

/No shiat? this company is probably owned by some rich corporate magnate from the US, who "couldn't" afford to pay American workers, so he shipped the company to get a bite of the nice fat slave labor. Way to stay classy.

Meanwhile in America you cannot even buy the plastic for shrinkwrapping or simple plastic bags that cheaply, let alone the machinery to ramp up the volume handled per shift.

Tell me again why it's evil to ship some jobs out of the country, when our cost of living is extremely high compared to China? Sometimes it's flat-out impossible to stay here.

Is this happening because the Chinese can't design a packaging machine to do this repetative job? because at $28 a day, you could buy a machine for a year's salary to do his job.
Isn't there some kind of economic theory that states something about low wages and something about innovation?

Actually the machine cost about 15 years worth of his salary, before TVM

Several of them. They don't hold up when your population is basically disposable. My company uses robots, central conveyor, forklifts. We have plants in Mexico and China. There is almost no automation in either plant. They carry more than twice the laborers for half the production of us. The workers make a pretty good wage for their area and they are still more profitable than we are.

Riveting video.

Compelling and rich.

I heard the guy who ran the American book-wrapping company fired 22 of his workers because Fartbongo was re-elected.

And the guy is dressed nicely, in a tie, with short hair and no body "art".

Bet he would be managing the poor slob that was doing the wrapping if he was in the US... unless it was a union shop where promotion was based on tenure.

Pinch the bag just below the handle and lift, shove book, flip flop tape. He could do 7000 a day with a little education.

Damn that pace is what I used to pull working in the reprographics shops. 8 hours a day, 240 work days a year, 2150 sheets of 30X42 or 2600 sheets of 24X36 a day. Diazo sucked. Then I finished my degree, moved to where there is work and never looked back. Now I pay somebody to do it for me.

I hope he doesn't get carpar tunner syndrome.
