Breaking News: 98% of Walmart Sales manufactured in China

Everyone likes a good deal on everything and anything they purchase. That in my opinion is not a bad aspiration. Everybody would like to purchase 115 oz soda for $1.00. Everyone would like to eat as much McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys, Arbys and Pizza Hut food as they humanly consume with the gain of weight on the onset of heart disease.

That being said, when are Americans going to realize that until they really decide that America’s future prosperity is important enough to not shop at a retail establishment that benefits exclusely Walmart stock holders, and China the return of jobs to the USA are not likely?
The number 98% may sound exagerated but in fact that number is a number stated by Walmart executives and even at that they conceed that “the real percentage could be even higher”.

I think it is about time that retail establishments begin to post in their stores much like the calories posted in fast food resturants where each product is manufactured.

Perhaps then companies that manufacture products in the United States will have a more level playing field with the companies that are happy that the public does not know their products are manufactured elseware.

Living Wage Jobs, Less Gun Violence, Living with Dignity

Living Wage Jobs, Less Gun Violence, Living with Dignity are all charactistics that every American should be assured. Sadly, the class structure as it exists today nearly makes that impossible.

Americas’ financial implosion of 2008 rocked to the core of every Americans existance. Gone were the days when banks had any latitude for underwriting business loans or for that matter home loans.

While some may argue, I feel the vast majority of working age Americans are wanting and willing to work on a daily basis. As a teacher in a inner city high school I hear stories of parents not working because they are better off not working due to wage and hour availabilities. Less than 40 hours thus no insurance and minumum wage jobs thus not living wage jobs. Why bother working if no insurance, not enough pay and no future?

Currently, there are 100’s of American companies manufacturing their products in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and other non Norht American contries. In those foreign countries is in excess of $5,000,000,000.

Granted these countries only play their employees only $3.00 to $4.00 per day, but one must also place a financial cost factor on the time of shipments to that country, ocean transportation costs, bad PR related to their manufacturing on foreign soil.

It is time that we reward companies for returning jobs to America. It is time we reward our unemployed for getting a job. It is time we make it possible for the undereducated to receive their education. It is time that we provide a dignified future for those destine to commit crimes. All this can be accomplished within the framework of the Free Enterprise System.

Unemployed, Underemployed, Undereducated, Un-Family support team, Un-Loving family

For my entire life I have cared about everyone not just the hip or popular but also those that perhaps are not conventional that may flunk the test of Perception is 98% of Reality.

There are those of us that are fall under one if not many of the catelgories of Unemployed, Underemployed, Undereducated, Un-Family support team, Un-Loving family that none the less seek a dignified day to day existance.

I am a strong believer in the Free Enterprise System and not a big advocate of entitlement. What I am trying to do with my blog is to get the attention of the our elected officials to convey that as an innovator, problem solver and entreprenuer that I have devised a plan not to limit 2nd amendment rights we all have but rather instead to limit the needs for the bad guys to have a reason to pick up the innate gun and use it for the wrong reason.

Attention: Unemployed, Under-Employed, Under-Educated you are NOT forgotten

Proud Americans that are Unemployment, Under-employment, Under-educated and Veteran Americans are in need of an innovative, creative solution to provide them with a viable, dignified, educationally sound defined-job-work-force training combined with a company based on the Free Enterprise business model.

I would argue that the vast majority of Americans are outstanding and motivated employees if they are given the chance and education to accomplish their goals. My fellow Americans seek a dignified and respectful living wage jobs that provide them with hope for their now and into their future.

The time has come for a world class manufacturing company that not only produces the worlds best products, but also provides a dignified status of living for its employees that currently exist in the world of the unemployed, underemployed, undereducated and Proud Veterans.

This world-class manufacturing company would provide for an educated on-site training program with the worlds best and highest standards in mind. This company will have on-site a continuing education program that companies will duplicate world-wide.

This company will act as not only the manufacturing company for the best products, but also as a job training company that educates the unemployed, underemployed, undereducated, and proud Veterans to perform job-specific skills at the highest attainable levels.

This world-class manfacturing company would provide a vehicle to reduce a need for gun violence, and other violence as a once frustrated population that would turn to violence would now have a job, eduation and a future.
