… AT STACKING BOXES FOR MINIMUM WAGE
FITSNews – October 1, 2007 – We don’t want to take a turn toward “Negative-town” or anything, but why the hell is it that every “major economic development announcement” in the state of South Carolina is another friggin’ warehouse or distribution center? Like last week’s Orangeburg County announcement, which officials say will bring 8,000 jobs to one of our state’s poorest, most rural counties.
Don’t get us wrong, eight thousand jobs is darn tootin’, but is South Carolina ever going to start attracting high-paying, knowledge-based jobs? Or what about corporate headquarters with their big tax bases and white collar management teams? Or could it be that we’re just never going to get there, that we’re eternally doomed to be the nation’s box-stackers given our borderline retarded population, anti-competitive tax code and pseudo-socialist state government?
You know, we used to stack boxes in a refrigerated warehouse once. But that was when we were fifteen. We got smarter. Of course, that was a pretty fun job. Especially when we got to yell out “Bruised Turkey!” every time one of the frozen turkey boxes fell off the pallet and hit the floor. It was also a lot of fun to take our homies’ money playing chess during breaks out in the parking lot. “Oh you took our, Queen, did you Holmes? Well we play betta without our b*tch, sucker.”
