Cool Weird or funny or......whatever

I just got a korg tuner GA-1.
While reading stuff on its box I saw = made in Vietnam.
I'm used to read made in usa/japan/china etc but seriously when I think about Vietnam tuners never come to my mind LOL
I'm picturing now children assembling them

Guys who say Vietnam is only about forests are the same dumb guys who say people in Brazil live on the trees or all north american people eat big mac.

The problem isn't about their development,the problem is using children

I think not all manufacturer/ industrial in vietnam using children as workers.

I know at their age they should go to school and go out play with friends, but this is a cruel world out here.
Same thing here in indonesia, with so many population, so low education rate, and goverment that only care to save their own a s s.. yeah, it's not gonna happen.

Re: Weird or funny or......whatever

Actually, one of my old jobs had begun holding international trade shows in Vietnam before plummeting. Some of the people we worked with commented that you can actually get a lot of good quality things from clothing to electronics for stupidly inexpensive if purchased directly from Vietnam. Of course I was laid off before I had a chance to see for myself. What an M. Night Shyamalan twist that was.
