 yehh don't be fooled by the people who "pass judgement" on
large-scale factories just because they get paid less and work more
hours than we do: their cost of living is 1/10th to 1/100th of ours.
remember, it was only recently in holland that a wealthy textile
merchant purchased weaving machines and offered people jobs at 12
hours a day for 6 days a week.  he had enormous queues outside his
factories.  why?  because people in holland at the time were
*hand-sewing* clothes, working *16* hours a day for *7* days a week,
earning *less* money.  and that was only 100 to 150 years ago.  in a
european country.
