Yesterday at the gym I had a chat with a hotel's cook/chef who had something to
say about these "scum of society". He has been around for many years to
witness vicious people with hookers, politicians in their pockets, and money
that is made using people (slaves? Children?) who are paid a mere pittance to
produce shirts for 50 cents (later to be sold for $20). These are the same
people who will relocate factories just to ensure maximum exploitation, no
backlash (better suck up to the predatory employer), and minimisation of
costs. These are people whose home has more invested in it than entire
factories they run (and money that gets paid). Guilt? No. People like Bill
Weisgerber have none. They are just what that guy called them yesterday.

BTW, the same goes for the software, crops, energy, and music industry. The
conversation I had concentrated on the Nike example.
