Funny ‘Family Guy’ Clip that Illustrates Disdain for Manufacturing; Plus a Clip from FastCap, a Lean Company

Friday, I blogged about a WIRED Magazine piece by Joel Johnson that was pretty disrespectful of manufacturing, in general, as he wrote that “every single manufacturing job ever” was “repetitive, exhausting, and [an] alienating workplace over which you have no influence or authority.” That might describe some factories, but hardly ALL.

I stumbled across this funny Family Guy clip, where Peter Griffin (a factory worker) gets heckled at the school’s career day… maybe this was Joel Johnson growing up?  :-)

Check out FastCap, by comparison, a company where employees ARE engaged in creativity and continuous improvement, where “FastCap is all about growing people.”
