Levi's No Longer a Good Fit for U.S.

September 29, 2003

Re "Levi, an American Icon, to Shut Last Plants in U.S.," Sept. 26: Now I finally understand the new economy that lawmakers, at the urging of special business interests, are shoving down our throats: have every single job held in India or China or some Third World country. Encourage Americans to keep on buying with credit until everything is lost to creditors. Then we may join our Third World brothers by happily sewing buttons on jeans, or operating a sneaker assembly line, for 40 cents a week. Maybe a shack to live in will be provided, too, if we are good.

This will be a global economy that corporate executives and shareholders will love. Now it all makes sense.
