Big Box Mart

Media Type: TV Clips Topic: Jobs & Unemployment

This entertaining animated video suggests that Wal-mart's low prices can be traced to low-cost labor from China. Once all US manufacturing jobs are outsourced to the "slums of Beijing" the only place US workers will be able to find work is at big box stores. Great discussion starter about outsourcing. Warning: contains occasional mild language.
