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.
