You can tell me how semi companies *should* operate all day long, but I work for one with over 10K employees and billions in annual revenue, and what I told you is how they *do* operate.  It's called fact based reality.

Good luck calling the chamber of commerce or some government lackey.

Small businesses, just like large ones, have to adapt or die. 

Welcome to the socially unconscious, erroneous pathology of the free market.

Best regards,

PS this is pretty off topic.  To spare our group further noise, I've said my last word on this subject.  I'm sure you'll insist on writing another epic post, so have at it. Make it a good one!
