This is why all manufacturing companies around the world have pissed off to China and leaving millions of jobless behind. Slave labor is one, cheaper to build is two and profits made when shipped back to you and sold at the prices value of your country dollar is three. Millions of containers filled with cheap junk shipped all over the world to you, strangling every other countries economy, turning jobless into crime and drugs, while China profits.

So presumably, if these were still being made in Ramsgate, they would cost £50 per car instead of £30? Oh no, wait, the prices would probably be the same, but the company directors would not be able to drive around in Bentleys and Ferraris is all.

Did you know the average Chinese worker thinks about killing themself 4 times a day.. FACT! And yes I have been to China and was in the sleepy little area of Guangdong..HELL ON EARTH..Dirtier than any place in India!

Can I just say as a genuine badge-wearing paid up 1979 member of the 'Scalextric Formula one drivers club', those are not 'imitation' tyres. They are real tyres, miniature yes, but quite real. I have burned some of those out... oh I could tell you some tales, I have raced Fittipaldi and Hunt, and a Gerbil!!

@AussiePillow1 Show me any business where money does not come first. That does not mean that they do not care about other things like people or the environment, but if you don't make sales, you don't make a profit, and if you don't make a profit, you die.
AussiePillow1 (10 months ago)
@tryptychUK Then their main function is what they should be advertising. Its disgusting when companies make ads pretending to care about the community, when all they really care about is making money with no regard to human life.
tryptychUK (10 months ago)
@AussiePillow1 Companies are not there to be a social service. Their function is to make a profit. They will go to wherever they can do it best. It's not about making more money, it's about remaining competitive. The trouble is all our manufacturing resources are long gone.
AussiePillow1 (10 months ago)
tryptychUK Capitalism. The company wanted more money so they sent labour offshore, when they could have easily kept the labour in Britain to help solve their problem of unemployment

Slave labor at its best people. I love how they show the better side of what these places are really like. Long hours, bad pay. Forced rent and food. Whatever is left over is sent back to their parents as payment for raising them. Sad eixsistance

' details on the model cars....... ' erm not really. Used the same Benetton shell 93/ 94 / 95 / 97 + 99................. and don't get me started on the 95 Ferrari ripped off from the 91. Fucking horrific. That's when Ninco absolutely pulled your pants down and you were lazy.

TBH I worked in far worse conditions in the US. These places at least look clean. I worked in a plastics factory in college, and the conditions were afwul. Actually there were alot of molding and painting simliarites between the two factories, except the one in China looked like a clean operating table compared to the US factory. For reference I worked there about 13 years ago, so it wasn't that long ago.

Pretty much handwork involved. One would think that a 'big machine' took care of it all. But labor have been cheap for along time in China, but not anymore.

Popular today I doubt that. And it’s only dying by the day. Holding onto your pathetic childhood memories holding on to a specific time is only holding you back from Experiencing the most out of life. Don’t take me seriously The profits have spoken.

Cost effective chinese, from rice paddies to factory-'workers',in exchange for paper to exchange for rice, no net difference, when you see someone with millions/billions of exchangeable paper (="money"), then be SURE that the mugs (= "workers"), are getting LESS paper for their slave-tasks (= "jobs"), which is equal to under-paid (= modern-slavery), Isnt this SO clever? Communist (=forcable corrupt practices, benefits enjoyed by the FEW at the pyramids-top), with a Capitalist "face". usa is NO different, "free" society (= Controlled by organised-corrupt DEBT economy/Debt-slavery), and the world moves round., all by corrupt controlling private bankers (= Wankers). Yes scale-slave-lectric a fun product See how Happy (= Not), the slaves (="workers"), 'are' hmmm.....

I always just love how they claim China has effective labor...English translation is $15 per hour in the US and .25 cents in China. Yea you think you can bring back sold out American companies to America and be competitive - well then you had better check what you are smoking I think it has gotten old...in other words they should have never left for 3 world contries

My parents neighbors wife used to work at the Topper Toy Company in Elizabeth, New Jersey. She was always bringing me home toys to play with. Good old " Made In The U.S.A." The toys were of good quality. I just wish I had them again. I see on eBay, some of the sellers are asking a small fortune for the toys.
