Amway, the Best Job you Never Had

Sunday, July 8th, 2007 defines ‘Job’ as:

1. A regular activity performed in exchange for payment, especially as one’s trade, occupation, or profession.

Note the phrase ‘in exchange for payment’. I understand that those who sell Amway products are employed by themselves, and therefore are responsible for paying themselves, just as any self-employment situation. What I don’t understand is how so many people can tell keep looking in to the future where a land of 24-karat gold plated yachts sail around a man-made lakes behind mansions owned by successful IBOs.

News Flash!
Spending 16 hours a day and paying yourself the equivilant of a Honduran making Nike appearal in Guatamala’s AAA factory is not success by conventional standards. Oh, actually, checking the records, the typical employee of the Honduran AAA/Alejandro Apparel factory makes $1.11 an hour, or $211.94 a month compared to the typical Amway/Quixtar IBO making $115 a month. Maybe the Quixtar people should move to Honduras to make some real money!
