P is for Profits!

Fantastic news everyone: Apple is preparing for a Late Fall release for the newest I-Phone 5! It’s promised to be much faster and powerful than its predecessor and packed with tons of new features. This will definitely have an influx of profit margins for the Apple Corporation as a whole.

The anticipation is building by the hour and the fan-blogs will be set ablaze with eager shoppers ready to spend their cash. Hmmm, I wonder if there the lines forming outside of the Apple stores are comparable to the lines forming outside of the local unemployment offices across town?

Even still, with this booming market, one would think that a jolt in sales would help to sustain the need to employ our U.S. citizens in order to make said product.

Unfortunately that’s not the case. Instead, the manufacturing plants for much of Apple’s, Dell’s, HP’s, the list goes on, are imported overseas.

Particularly within a company known as Foxconn.

This industrious heavyweight has maintained such a stranglehold that the sheer size of one of its plants in China employs nearly half a million humans and covers 1.16 square miles. It has been labeled with the family-friendly moniker “Foxconn City”, as employees live, play (?), and work within these very confines.

The demand for production continues to rise from the avalanching volume of sales from across the globe, particularly in the U.S. To help balance their demand needs, the employees are placed on a strict regimen of work-eat-sleep-work routine that is undoubtedly monitored and supervised at all times.

Such unrelenting stress will lead to tremendous levels of self-depreciation, humans being treated as caged animals causing a panicked sense for escape. As seen here, the workers are often left with an absolute choice in order to remove themselves from their antagonistic bonds:

Sure, keeping a half-dozen workers sleeping in living room-like quarters and giving them little outlets for expression and individuality is the best way for American moguls to earn their millions/billions.

Wow, 264.00 per month……..

If they can save their monthly income a couple times, they can actually afford to wait in line and then buy one of the 50 I-Pads they built in a given business day. How reassuring to know that your employer has just installed safety nets overhead. Wouldn’t that make you feel like a lucky, valued human being?

Breaking news from Steve Jobs and other CEOs:

The rise of both American unemployment and overworked outsourced workers have become a billionaire’s blight.

The disproportion of wealth has become glaringly obvious.

God bless America & butt-fu*k the rest….
