Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
I saw a cartoon today –
A man and a woman were walking out of a mall.
The man was carrying four boxes – a plasma TV marked “Made in Taiwan….a DVD player marked “Made in Korea”….a pair of sneakers marked “Made in Indonesia” and an MP3 player marked “Made in China.” He was wearing a new hat with a tag “Made in Thailand” and a scarf “Made in Cambodia” and a “Made in Japan” cell phone hanging from his belt …”Made in India.
He asked his wife “Why are so many jobs going overseas?”
To which she responds – “Beats me.”
Americans want the benefit of cheap prices but don’t realize they pay for it in other ways – lost jobs being one of them.
What do you think?
Cartoons are supposed to be funny…but this one wasn’t.
But this is what happens when Americans do business in Japan, China, Russia, Cambodia, Korea, India and other Asian countries.
