Nike to Build Headquarters in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 14, 2012


Nike, whose collective soul has been exposed by little kids being strapped to Nike machines, toil away so that we can sport the same shirts as tiger once did.
It should come as no surprise that such a company would be shifting jobs from the heartland to china, after all, who cares that for the first time in history, we will not live better than our fathers did.
But on the bright side, china has new found affluence and places like Guangdong are raising the minimum wage for each year for the past three years. And better than that, china bought more rolls than we did.
Good job Nike and go china go!!!

    I’ve owned one pair of Nike shoes my whole life – they lasted one month. Worst pair of shoes I ever had. Of course most Nike shoes last longer, obviously, but I still hold a grudge against them and won’t buy another pair from them; now I have another reason to boycott them. Not to mention Phil Knight is a bastard who reaped gold mines off the backs (and fingers) of poor Third Worlders who sand papered their appendages to the bone for da man. (he wrote a paper in business school on how an upstart, by using cheap Third World labor, could overtake Adidas in the shoe market.)
