Labor Day

Henry Ford

He produced an affordable car, paid high wages and helped create a middle class. Not bad for an autocrat By LEE IACOCCA

From Time 100
The same year, Henry Ford shocked the world with what probably stands as his greatest contribution ever: the $5-a-day minimum-wage scheme. The average wage in the auto industry then was $2.34 for a 9-hr. shift. Ford not only doubled that, he also shaved an hour off the workday. In those years it was unthinkable that a guy could be paid that much for doing something that didn't involve an awful lot of training or education. The Wall Street Journal called the plan "an economic crime," and critics everywhere heaped "Fordism" with equal scorn. But as the wage increased later to a daily $10, it proved a critical component of Ford's quest to make the automobile accessible to all. The critics were too stupid to comprehend that because Ford had lowered his costs per car, the higher wages didn't matter — except for making it feasible for more people to buy cars.

From the New York Times:
SHENZHEN, China — Persistent labor shortages at hundreds of Chinese factories have led experts to conclude that the economy is undergoing a profound change that will ripple through the global market for manufactured goods.

The shortage of workers is pushing up wages and swelling the ranks of the country's middle class, and it could make Chinese-made products less of a bargain worldwide. International manufacturers are already talking about moving factories to lower-cost countries like Vietnam.

At the Well Brain factory here in one of China's special economic zones, the changes are clear. Over the last year, Well Brain, a midsize producer of small electric appliances like hair rollers, coffee makers and hot plates, has raised salaries, improved benefits and even dispatched a team of recruiters to find workers in the countryside.

That kind of behavior was unheard of as recently as three years ago, when millions of young people were still flooding into booming Shenzhen searching for any type of work.

From Richard A. Levins, Professor Emeritus of Applied Economics, University of Minnesota
And that, in a nutshell, is the problem. Once corporations pay all their expenses, anything left over must be distributed between labor and owners. When labor has power, wages grow, and with them, the middle class. When owners have power, we move toward a society of rich and poor without much in the middle.

A farmer I have worked with over the years put it this way: When you sit down to dinner with a group of hungry people, it’s not only the size of the pie that matters. The size of your fork is just as important.

Pulse the Movie

Pulse the Movie picture Part of the audience is in the photo. Lori Bell(seated to the right of Peggy Jo) is the mother of Kristen Bell the star of the movie. It was hard to determine who was more pleased, our group who asked many questions about the movie, Kristen, Hollywood and Rumania where the file was made or Lori who enjoyed the interest in her "Pride and Joy". Because the run of the movie finished at noon on Sunday we were treated to a private showing.

In spite of the dark message conveyed by the film which was based on the idea that dead people were trying to regain their life through our present day electronic devices such as computers hooked up the Internet, cell phones, Personal Data Assistants (PDA), the people in the Java Hut right next door to the theater were not concerned. Almost all of them were using the free Internet access provided by the independent Coffee shop.

Lori wants to thank everyone for coming to the private showing of the film and said she was happy to give us the inside scoop.

Concours D'elegance

Round door Rolls Royce These two photos taken by Fred Rozario at the Concours D'elegance were just begging to be published. The Round Door Rolls Royce was voted The People's Choice.

Notice how the windows open like a butterfly in the second photo of Peggy Jo and Dick Messer.

Why do fevers rise in the evening?

Sick or well, you run your engine all day, and it gets warmer. When you're well, your body starts to cool as you turn off the activity toward the end of your day. But if you're sick, your engine is overheating, and you don't cool so easily. Your temperature continues to rise, and it may not drop until you go to sleep. In the morning, the engine revs up all over again.

Ignore the Bogus Mars Hype

Author Robert Roy Britt
Mars is perennially the most rumor-generating of all the nine planets. Oops. Eight. Anyway, pay no attention to emails you might get that say Mars will be brighter than the full Moon on Aug. 27.

The bogus information is based on the delightful apparition of Mars back in 2003. Each year since, people have been duped by spurious emails and web postings claiming the event would occur in that year.

If you need further convincing, take it from NASA. Meantime, if you were all psyched up to do some skywatching, go ahead. The Milky Way is a fine sight now, and some other planets are putting on a nifty show in the pre-dawn.
