there was a time when the american worker made really good things. So good, in fact, that an MBA realized that stuff didnt break. He then ewent to the american worker, and discussed how to make an inferior product, and lower the amount of pride that american workers have in their career paths. wanting to slowly erode the american standard of living, and make his kids have to work harder, for less, the american worker thought, jeez, this is simple. i will walk into engineering, and show them how to make an inferior product, that will cost less, and break more often.
the worker, singlehandedly, started the downfall of the greatest economy on earth to date. fortunately, his ideas made millions for companies. the copanies in turn, had their friends talk to their american workers, to find ways to make all products less expensive, and less robust. you see, it could only be the workers doing this, as they were unionized, and are known to be the only people who destroy businesses. so, the trend continued, and workers from all over the land snuck into engineering offices at night and on weekends, and changed whole designs of products. this included specifying less expensive casings to save money on metals, smaller gages on wires to save money there, and smaller circuits on printed circuit boards to save money there.
eventually, the american worker realized that things were still expensive, so he went ot school at night, and learned plastics engineering. he eventually introduced plastics into everyday life. he also went to school to become an english major, so he could invent buzzwords like shareholder valve, and ebidta. he worked tirelessly to change the entire culture of business.
funny thing though....this american worker had no desire to profit from his troubles. he didnt care that he had singlehandedly changed the landscape of the american economy. NO!! what he really wanted was a bad reputation, and less money. so, he continued to make changes until he realized that his wages were just too expensive. he then helped develop a plan to ship his very own job offshore to save money. being such a good worker, he then agreed that the management teams he was helping should see huge gains in their salaries, but he should only get minimal gains, after all a paper pusher is waay more valuable than a guy who makes stuff with his hands and mind.
seems that he failed in his mission though, as it took until his grandchildren were of working age for his efforts to mean anytihng, and he is now nearly dead. its a shame though, seems like he forgot to wreck his pension plan that he had from his union.
