Welcome to the global

Welcome to the global economy. Chinese people would work twice our shifts for our pay. Anyhow... I currently work for a machine shop. I started not even know how to use a tape measure... well its been about a month and yeah ill admit that those people working for 30 years know alot of stuff... little tricks and little quirks that make them faster. Give me a year or two and ill be close to as fast as them. Why.. would we keep paying for expensive old men.. when I will do 7/8 of their job in a 2 year window. That is called economic loss. Of course other factors play in for wages such as loyalty. Ill be moved out of Missouri in 2 years and no where close to these employers. However, that doesnt change that im worth 12k a year and they are worth 40k. What a waste of money
