DISGUSTED, LOOKING FOR A JOB?

(01/20/2009)

oPINION AND COMMENT

Joe woke and turned off his alarm clock (made in Japan).

While his coffeepot (made in China) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (made in Hong Kong).

He put on a dress shirt (made in Sri Lanka), designer jeans (made in Singapore) and tennis shoes (made in Korea).

After cooking breakfast in his new electric skillet (made in India), he sat down with his calculator (made in Mexico) to see how much he could spend today while looking for work.

After setting his watch (made in Taiwan) to the radio (also made in India), he got in his car (made in Germany), filled it with gasoline (from Saudi Arabia) and went on a fruitless day of job-hunting.

At home that night, he searched for job ads on his computer (made in Malaysia), put on his sandals (made in Brazil), poured himself a glass of wine (from France), turned on his TV (made in Indonesia), and wondered why he can't find a good-paying job in America.

Oh, well, he decided to have dinner, cracked some cans, jars and frozen delights, compliments of China, Mexico, Belgium, Peru, India and Guatemala.
