It was bound to happen: 300 condom workers are getting the shaft (here). These workers are being stiffed by U.S. Agency for International Development, which will be sending their jobs to China (Scientific note: out of the 300 jobs that go to China , only the first one to reach an egg will become fertilized). The condoms, you see, are sent to poor, promiscuous nations, such as Haiti and West Virginia , where, without American intervention, the locals would have to use other methods of birth control, such as using prophylactic beaver pelts or wearing Lyle Lovett face masks.
This massive job loss makes no condom sense to me. Apparently, it was found that Chinese condoms only cost two cents to make, compared with American condoms, which cost a nickel to produce. Now, if Chinese dog food and Chinese baby formula are any indicators of the quality of prophylactic that we’ll see, then I predict a very soon. I thought that we, as a nation, were trying to save small business jobs, such as condom producers; where is the stimulus help for these hard up workers (Health warning: contact your doctor if stimulus lasts more than three (3) hours)?
