Meet the Lumpers: Ghosts of Christmas Present

Click here to read how corporate “logistics” actually translates into nightmare jobs worthy of a Charles Dickens novel. Sprawling warehouses full of Asian goods are emptied and filled by under-paid, uninsured per-diem workers laboring under the constant threat of being replaced by the temp agencies that contract with retail giants like Wal*Mart. The pressure on these workers is especially high during the holiday shopping season as retailers demand quick delivery to store shelves. Meanwhile, crowds of the desperate unemployed stand in line for a chance to fill job openings as hapless workers are injured and replaced.
God bless us, every one!
