Outsourcing gone too far

This is BY FAR the most ridiculous example of everything that's wrong with globalization.
Excerpt: Young’s, the seafood company, plans to ship the prawns from the West Coast of Scotland, where they are caught, on a 12,000-mile, nine-week round trip to Thailand, where they will be hand-peeled by workers earning 25p an hour.

They will then be shipped back to Scotland before being breaded and packaged as premium “Scottish Island” scampi for British supermarkets.
Thomas Friedman just peed a little from the excitement.
