I believe the Black Friday and Cyber Monday stats are misleading as well. Most of the stuff sold is made in China or other cheap labor countries.<quoted text>
I hope your kidding?
The reason black friday and cyper monday broke records is because of credit cards and cheap merchandize. Chrysler is moving plants to Mexico. Unemployment is 9.6%http://www.wsmv.com/news/2 5879248/detail.html.
There's disappointing news for General Motors employees (nashville) who've been laid off for more than a year. Union leaders said Monday it will be at least another year before anyone goes back to work. Read the rest of the article at.
Of course Union Leaders are protected.
So things are good?
About as good as the Vikings are playing football. Up one week and down the next. Sorry about the last paragraph but I had to make this a football post to keep with the thread....
As the song says "I like dreaming"
Taking advantage of a great price on a Craftsman compressor on Friday, I was dismayed to see "Made in China" in very fine print.
In tough economic times such as these, football can provide a welcome distraction, not so much this year for us Vike fans- but we will take all the wins we can get!
