She's making SMPS transformers.

I couldn't make it through the 2 1/2 minute video.
2014-07-05 08:45:01 AM  
No. No.

Just looking at that pile would depress me.
2014-07-05 11:23:30 AM  
and she could probably make more in a whorehouse massage parlor in the US in an hour than she makes in a month doing that.
2014-07-05 11:29:04 AM  
All that work and the company will just want more in an hour anyway.

My carpal tunnel can feel that.  Or not feel, I should say.
2014-07-05 12:16:45 PM  
How many months/years until she has crippling repetitive motion injuries?
2014-07-05 12:39:06 PM  
I wouldn't last an hour (lousy eye-hand coordination).

You can pretty much guarantee that her wages are less than $1 hour.

In this video, the organic unit is assembling each item at 16 seconds apiece. The quota is 14 seconds. I hope that severe disciplinary action is inflicted.

I grew up in South Alabama in the 80's. I had a job as a "machinist" in a textile factory making shirts. You should see a Singer buttonholer in action. Or even a 'Stay' binder that puts those hard plastic things in you collar so that the points remain crisp. And the needles that I removed from operators fingers on the button machine line, that was sad. Fortunately NAFTA solved all those problems and everybody got a new job as an unemployed.

Wow.....that's amazing, sad, and sou-crushing all at once.
2014-07-05 02:25:09 PM  
I bet she was executed for not going fast enough.
2014-07-05 02:54:53 PM  
I bet she does everything fast with her hands.

Spent a summer punching out rubber gaskets on a hydraulic press. It almost broke me psychologically - the only thing keeping me sane was I knew it was only temporary. I worked next to guys that had been there 30 years. It wasn't the greatest summer, but it damn well made me want to do well in college.

"SONY... Because Caucasians are too damn tall."

Any job is a good job in this economy.

/Transformers:  More than meets the eye.
2014-07-05 05:14:30 PM  
Once machines eliminate this job, do you think the workers will miss it?

You sound rather gung ho.

Waitaminute. I think I have the wrong movie.

diaphoresis: I bet she does everything fast with her hands.

I'd allow her more than 15 seconds to wind *my* transformer.

What?  You get better quality that way.
2014-07-05 07:17:35 PM  
Yes. Did piecework years and years ago, as an in-between job. I grew up in a family of factory workers.

Worked different jobs in a factory for a few years. You can get very quick at things after repeating them for a while. It only seems impossible until you get 10hrs a day of practice.
2014-07-05 09:52:09 PM  
I think I'll show this video the next time someone laments those wonderful manufacturing jobs that got outsourced. Frankly, even retail looks better than this.
2014-07-05 10:35:22 PM  
Retail does not look better than this.
2014-07-06 12:09:15 AM  
Could be worse.  Could be packing playing cards.

A quick, sloppy google search reveals that Chinese factory wages are currently around $2.00 an hour.
