Sometimes a brick is not just a brick.

Sometimes it’s your paycheck. At least in Russia.

So bricks run between say $0.25 and $0.50 apiece.

The factory has $64,000 in unpaid wages.

That’s like between 128,000 and 256,000 freakin’ bricks!

If your monthly salary was $500, thats from 1000 to 2000 bricks!

People I’m all for a commodity standard but I put it to you that the brick is not an excellent medium of exchange.

Try making change with one of these babies.

Or putting $10 worth in your wallet for a night out.

Hat tip to Tyler who sadly buried the lede.
