21. 'Free Market' is not the word for it.
They owned plants all over the World. Each plant had to bid against the others for a contract. The only way we could compete was in 'productivity.'

In other words, we had to work our asses off. Every part had a bar code, and when the worker handled that part, they had to scan it into the database. At the end of the shift, he would print out who did what and how much. Every Shift, the Grim Reaper would come around and tap someone on the shoulder and escort them out the door. The only difference between that and Auschwitz was the lack of a gas chamber on the other side.

The owner learned his trade Working for Werner VonBraun, The guy who built V2s with slave labor in tunnels.
