Sweatshop In China Doesn’t Know What To Do With One Million Jeremy Lin NY Knicks Jerseys Now
CHINA (The Global Edition) – Management of Xhi-Chu-Won sweatshop in szechuan province of China is struggling to find a buyer for one million Jeremy Lin NY Knicks jerseys that it produced last week, Chinese media report. All the hard work the employees of this sweatshop have invested in making the jerseys is now completely worthless thanks to Lin’s sudden decision to sign for Rockets instead of Knicks last week.
“Was Lin thinking about our workers and how hard they worked to make these jerseys in time in order not to be penalized, when he signed the deal? I guess not. And I guess NY Knicks weren’t aware of the fact that our underage employees are now falling behind in school because they had to work extra hours on these now worthless jerseys,” says factory manager Lee Xhua-Tin. “Now they are going to have to work even harder in order to try to re-sew the word “Knicks” to “Rockets”. And not to mention the colors are now all wrong,” added mr Xhua-Tin.
Lin’s sudden signing to Rockets instead of Knicks made a huge impact on Chinese economy, leaving thousands of underpaid workers without income, since factories they were working at were left with billions of dollars in Linsanity-Knicks merchandise they are now unable to sell.
“He should have just told us a week ago that he was going to sign for the stupid Rockets”, says La-Chi-Min (9), worker in one of the factories now stuck with 500.000 t-shirts with Lin as the Statue of Liberty. “Have you got any idea how hard it is to sew all those t-shirts and to find out in the end it was all for nothing?” asks Chi-Min. “If anyone’s to blame for me not receiving my 5 dollars for 80 work hours I put in previous week, it’s Jeremy Lin”, she added.
