Obama-backed documentary on Ohio factory wins Academy Award

"The documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length documentary was produced and directed by my guests Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are it was the first film acquired by the Obamas new production company higher ground which is distributing it in partnership with Netflix last year American factory when the Sundance directing award in the documentary category the movie is about what happened when a Chinese company opened a new automotive glass factory in Dayton Ohio in the same spot where a GM company close just a few years earlier the new Chinese factory foo yell glass America was greeted is great news by Dayton and by men and women in need of jobs but as time went on it became apparent there was a considerable culture clash between how the Chinese treat workers and have the American workers expected to be treated especially those workers who are used to having the United auto workers union behind them and no longer did some of the workers are making half as much in our IT Fujio than they did at GM by focusing on this one factory the film is a case study of what the global economy means for some American workers and how hard it's become to find work that pays enough to have a home and support children right guard and bogan are with the perfect people to make American factory they live twenty five minutes away from the factory and their previous film the last track documented the closing of Dayton's GM factory the last track was also nominated for an Oscar your record Steve Bognor welcome to fresh air congradulations on your Oscar nomination and on the film thank you Terry so what were the expectations in your hometown Dayton won a Chinese billionaire announced that he would open a new automotive glass factory there on the site of the GM plant that close you know people were very hopeful we had lost the GM plant almost eight years before when chairman Chow who's the you know Chinese billionaire who bought that old rusting General Motors plant when he came to town it just everybody was really very excited yeah after that GM plant closed things were so hard for so long I mean people lost their homes the job you could get were like at the Cole's distribution center or payless shoes warehouse distribution center or fast food people making nine Bucks an hour and and imagine your middle aged you gotta cater to your mortgage and you're making nine dollars an hour it's just like it was so hard and there was such hope went went through yeah now yeah so what were the incentives for the billionaire the Chinese billionaire the chairman who opened this factory in Dayton well one thing is if you make glass in the Midwest right on interstate seventy five right if you think about it goes from Detroit all the way down through the south all the auto makers are all along there so heavy glass no longer has to be shipped from China to reach the big three and all the other automakers and you know labor costs and China have been going up over many years and labor costs you know what people make per hour in the US have been going down and so the chairman and his team the free out team we're doing a lot of calculations about the cost of shipping the cost of energy labor costs and at some point it made sense for them to come to the US and and actually chairman shall told us he was also asked by General Motors by some of the other automakers to set up shop in the Midwest because they needed more Cassidy more more reliable glass delivery you know the chairman is seventy three years old now he's exactly my age as it happens he I think wanted a kind of capstone project to his life and he wanted to create a big huge plant in the United States this was a huge challenge his family was against him a lot of the Chinese other businessmen were against him it was kind of a personal decision on his part to go ahead and do it despite the opposition from people close to him it's such an interesting clash of cultures that we see in American factory expectations regarding everything about work from pay and benefits to what workers are expected to sacrifice for the privilege of working for the corporation let's start by comparing what automakers made at the GM plant when they were unionized and they were in the United auto workers to what they were making at Fujio which is not unionized well in in the film shown a Rosser who worked at the old GM plant and now works of Frida she says it varies directly she says that GM she was making twenty nine dollars and some cents per hour and if we out she makes twelve eighty four so that's less than half of what she used to make and you know she has several children she's got she has a house that they actually lost they lost their houses they couldn't they couldn't make the mortgage payments after GM closed it's a very different world and you know here here's the crazy thing it's like in China it's been a remarkable trajectory like China is on the rise and people in the film like Wong he once he is the furnace engineer who has been sent from China to the U. S. he's here for at least two years is not going to see his children for two years but he's been working a full house and she was like nineteen years old she is so dedicated to food out and it's offering him a path to the middle class he told us he's going to be able to build a build a house for his for his family for his kids back in China because he's making such good money meanwhile in the states people like Shimei who once had a blue collar middle class life modest but but secure they they have no security anymore and it's it's just very different landscape I want to get back to the culture clash between the Chinese and the Americans at the Chinese on factory in Dayton the American workers there thought they were working just like too hard for too little pay and the Chinese supervisors and the chairman that is the CEO of the company thought American workers that they're they're just lazy they don't appreciate what we're giving them and they want to much praise they need to be praised all the time where is the American workers felt like they were not being respected you know you're really putting your finger on something that I wish the management had recognized way earlier in that plant and I will I hope all foreign companies coming here begin to recognize that in our work culture workers expect to be respected expect to be not told do you just do this American worker will respond well why and maybe I have a better idea we'll look them look the supervisor right in the eye and question them this is not really happen in China very much it's just a different work culture where people do what the boss says boss says you have to work six days a week or seven days a week you just do it but in the United States we are we are expected we've what fought to have an eight hour day and the have weekends off that's pretty much unheard of in industrial work in China people expect to work twelve hour days six days a week the Chinese workers we spoke with we spoke with a lot of them they're not happy about it they don't like being away from their kids for most of the year or only seeing them on Sunday partly it's because that's what the culture has brought them to you know they've they've lifted millions and millions of people out of poverty in one and a half more last generations right but that has resulted in this really intense work life and people are proud you know Chinese workers are proud of their country they're proud of their company they're really proud how China is flourishing in the world I would say the American workers we now I can't say that they're proud of their company or they feel like really behind America like Americans really helping them rice in the world I think we're on a trajectory of less hope less possibilities we here in the US as far as working class people where is in China I think there's tremendous hope a tremendous sense that what our country is really has a huge place in the world to play there's a sequence that I I find so fascinating where the Chinese company bring some of the American supervisors to China to to see how this plan this kind of plan operates in China because the CEO of this company you know has one or more glass factories in in China so they bring them there and you see what it's like in China for the workers there first of all all the workers are in the union it's the communist union and seems like the branch of this union is headed by the CEOs brother in law true true yeah so what is the what I know strike one what is the union do for the workers there what is what is the meaning of the union well it's more like a social club either the union there because the the the Chinese Communist Party is so integrated and aligned with the management of food yeah now the traditional concept of the union that we would have here as an advocate for the workers in opposition to the company or to take on the company that that really doesn't exist the union that we saw and at Foochow in China is more like an HR department that helps build camaraderie esprit de corps you know that the kind of team building stuff and it's it's yeah it just felt different something else that really struck me and the Chinese segment of the film is that the supervisors talk to the workers in an almost military kind of way like to learn the workers would like line up information and the supervisor would kind of give them commands and then they'd have to like chance things at the end and they're chanting slogans like long as long as it's in praise of the company slogans they probably know really really well and don't really need to chance yeah it's this is just about their cultural difference it's funny because when one of the American supervisors when he got home he tried to get the Americans to line up in that kind of military formation and it just did not go that well you know it's like the people who signed up to work in this hot intense glass factory and the United States they're making twelve eighty four an hour and they're not getting paid enough to line up and be regimented like that there's a slogan that is said which I think so in kind of in capsules capitalism which is to stand still is to fall back wasn't that it's Steve yeah that's one of things a chance the morning on a day to stand still is to fall back and that's that's true of capitalism it is weird that the this communist country seems like the best capitalists in the world right now you know that they're sold they've been so driven my guess Sir Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are they

"You can message us right there. Well, as you alluded to mom, there was another. Yeah. Not bankruptcy. But just they have done that back PayLess had declared bankruptcy awhile back, but they are closing all of their twenty one hundred stores in the United States and Puerto Rico. What is what was I don't know that this would have caught my attention. If not for the crazy stunt that PayLess pulled me weeks right in December talks about that. And it made huge headlines because it was so this was where PayLess opened a pop up shop called policy. Yeah. And invited a bunch of the influencers and had what we're actually PayLess shoes for twenty bucks. But asked the influencers, you know, to speculate what they thought they were worth and moat many of these Instagram. They said they would pay upwards of six hundred fifty dollars for these shoes, and we're going on and the whole idea was that PayLess was going to do an ad campaign with all of these fancy fashion people saying like, oh, I love this. I love this. And then. The whole thing right? Right. I found the most interesting. This was an article that I was reading in fast company, and they attributed it too fast fashion, dine off, and I thought that was interesting that they think this is just one more sign that there's a shift in consumer behavior because according to them, and they say people are moving away from poorly made inexpensive fashion items that for decades people have gone to h and forever twenty one and all of these clothes that they could wear a few times and then get rid of them and not worry about it. But according to fast company, they say the fast fashion brands are on a decline, and that PayLess would be one of those. I mean, this has been a discussion for a while now, and I don't know that the idea of affordable fashion is going away. But I think that it's got to have a really strong brand position. I just read another article I'm trying to think where did we have this on our schedule this week to talk about why Zara is doing so much better than H and M right now. No, we've where did I read that? I don't know it up. No, I. Tonight. I read it I read it. But it was just talking about like, I mean, all the things that's our does right and making it feel like a real fashion experience, and and really on trend and even ahead of the trend in creating creating an environment and H M kind of being a little more traditional in the way, they do things and it's just not connecting anymore. What they're saying is that consumers are kind of tired of this partially because it's environmentally unsound. And that brands some of the shoe brands like they give the example of all birds in Rossi's are high-quality. They're equal friendly. They're durable in those companies are really thriving right now. So I don't know I I hadn't really thought about that that that these companies are kind of losing favorites. I mean, I just think I mean, gosh PayLess, it's never been a fun experience. It's never been fun to walk in there. I don't remember the last time I was in a paler. I mean, there might actually have been things that you would want. But it's like they weren't doing anything to entice us to go there and that whole stunt. They pulled seems like well, maybe they're going to start doing that. Maybe they're going to show us like look at how things also like we have. I mean. I don't know DSW feels like a more powerful opportunity and has brand name shell that's a whole different. It's a whole. But I think people like that model better. I think the lake I know am I wrong. Tell me correct me. But I think people would rather think they're getting a good deal on brand name merchandise. They sort of know the value as opposed to something else. Hey, here's another thing. I mean target continues to do all of the fashion categories better. Target has some really cute shoes. And I I mean, there are some so many times where I in my office. See people wearing adorable little booties or something. And I ask them where they got it. And it's target. Yeah. So I think that you know, that's a factor too. I don't know. But anyway, yeah. Wasn't that whole advertising stunt that whole thing? Well, maybe. Didn't get the message from the other. So please remind yourselves in all tweeted out on on Monday. But our in our March issue, our branding columnists in this is in twincities business Aaron Keller his March column, which we're gonna push live early. Because of this news this week. Is about the stunt about the policy style. Really? He his take on it as a branding expert. Was it was dumb. I was so surprised because I'm like, oh my gosh. And we were talking about how funny and how ingenious and and it was kind of fun to see the influencers squirm and his take was why was it? What they're this wasn't doing anything to drive people to pay PayLess. It wasn't making it seem more appealing except. I thought the idea was that in a way did 'cause people are seeing that these are really cool shoes. And they look good. And yet, they really are inexpensive. Yes. I'm gonna heat. Exactly. And I'm not saying, this is one opinion of his opinion was that it kind of missed the Mark. And that he actually thought they did themselves in this service by focusing on this price discrepancy, which was so enormous people saying these shoes are worth six hundred and fifty dollars when they sell for twenty that it actually could have the reverse effect in may make people think like, well, how are they selling them this cheap? Who's actually making these shoes where are they coming? Well, and that that goes back to what what fast company saying exactly wanna do that. Exactly. And and we know that the trend is and especially among younger consumers, they care more and more about where things are made how they're made the whole mission of the company a company like PayLess is completely out of step with that for a short time at least didn't Christian Syria. No designed some shoes for PayLess. I'm almost sure he did. You might be right about them. Yeah. I usually that sounds right.

Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. Frahm wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily. Hey, how much would you pay for a pair of shoes? If you didn't know what they were worth. That's the question discount shoe brand PayLess wanted to answer. And so it conducted an experiment right out of the textbooks of behavioral economists, the company created a fake luxury popup store and called it policy. They built it in a former Armani store in Los Angeles. And stocked it with PayLess products from Stella does to embellish sneakers. It had to look, right? So they added soft lighting gold mannequins and gorgeous sales people, then PayLess created a grand opening and invited internet influencers, so called fashion easter's who profit from showing off designer where on social media on the day of the big party, a long line formed outside the store inside champagne snacks and lots of self fees. The shoes whose prices normally ranged from nineteen nine. Eighty nine to thirty nine ninety nine were either marked up or left without tags. Guests were asked to bid on the shoes with no price listed some fell so hard for the stunt that one woman paid six hundred forty dollars an eighteen hundred percent markup videos recorded guests, impressions of the fake designer shoes. They call them elegant stunning in obviously made with high quality materials the shopping environment. And the online ads are the farthest cry from PayLess his actual barebones strip mall stores and branding, which usually appeal to budget minded pragmatists. And so the Gotcha moments when PayLess employees admitted to the influencers that it was all a hoax elicited shock for PayLess. Those reactions caught on video where priceless and viral, by the way, PayLess refunded shoppers money and gave them each of free. Pair of shoes while listeners might be skeptical. The. Experiment has roots in social science behavioral scientists have evidence that both language and environment dramatically change. Our perceptions of value. We happily pay more for grass fed beef on handmade buns and served on China plates than we do for McDonald's hamburger PayLess proved that often it's the environment and the language that influences to pay more in this case. Hundreds more been a product is worth and the company which has been struggling also scored a crucial point for itself.

Influencers a pretty big lesson about shoes by opening a fake store that sold main street shoes at Madison Avenue prices. This is pretty crazy. It was all over social media as kind of the the trick was revealed PayLess shoe source. I buy my shoes a lot. I'm not gonna lie. I'm not proud. They held a launch party in Los Angeles for a label called pay less. Sinise to sample merchandise at PayLess posted a video of what happened on Facebook VIP shoppers paid as much as six hundred and forty five dollars for shoes that cell from nineteen ninety nine to thirty nine ninety nine at PayLess, the store rang up three thousand dollars in business before PayLess actually came clean with the reveal. And they they revealed that they prayed shoppers they got their money back and they were allowed to keep the shoes. So it wasn't a bad deal for them. But the reactions are now going to be featured in a bunch of PayLess commercials. I think this is so funny because so many people frown or snarl at the idea of PayLess shoes Victorian care I've been buying PayLess shoes. Forever. And it's just I I like to have a lot of options I like to play with colors and have different looks. And so instead of paying a hundred dollars for a pair of shoes I can get two or three pairs from PayLess and have more choices. That's more important to me. You know, I I saw some of these videos and for these quote, unquote, influencers, you know, that they invited from from Instagram and Facebook and things like that. I couldn't believe that not a single one of them thought that there was something a little off about the quality. Because even if even if they're they're charging six hundred forty five dollars for a pair of heels. And okay, that's fine. Because those are designer prices which are ridiculous, but that's designer prices. But they'd have to be some sort of indication if you're really looking at a shoe, and you're really looking at the way it's made there has to be a difference between a nineteen ninety nine pair of shoes and a.

"Shit. Let's get. All right. I've heard plenty of stories over the years where fans people who like expensive wine do a blind taste tests. And it turns out that they love the fifteen dollar bottle of wine better than the two hundred dollar about a line. And it just shows us that we're snobs, and we are influenced by labels, and how much things cost. So there was a similar experiment that was recently done by PayLess shoe brand. I remember going there in like second grade to get shoes. Sorry, mom, I know they didn't fit and I lied to you because I liked them. And they were too tight. And I never wore them. So what they did. This was clever as PayLess opened up a fake pop up store, they called it policy. In Los Angeles. What they did was they invited a bunch of quote influencers. So probably people who have a certain number of followers on Instagram to come to this grand opening and they paid everybody a little bit. Because that's what happens you pay influencers money. They'll come and they'll do a bunch of social media about your product or your star. So what they did was. They stocked the store with just PayLess shoes. But all of these people thought that this was a new brand called. They took nineteen ninety nine sneakers and sold them for four hundred five hundred dollars. People went nuts. The store looked amazing day bought everything there were people who went for two nights, a total of three thousand dollars spent one person spent six hundred forty dollars for a pair of boots which was an eighteen hundred percent markup. Wow. And before they went they were like, given a bunch of materials about this and kind of hyped up about how cool this place was going to be. And then it was revealed that it was all fake, and they gave them all their money back in let them keep the shoes. But yeah, it was just another example. And you can think about even if you're someone who thinks that you would never fall for this. You do it somewhere else in your life? Like, I've realized even someone like I shop at the thrift stores much as I can I will sometimes Brian name brand when companies coming over because I think it will look better than generic even though I find it generic for myself like if I'm going to someone's house starving having a barbecue. And they asked me to bring ketchup or mustard. I would want to bring it to Nerik, but I would bring a brand new. Because I would think they would judge me. I was in Japan recently, of course, and I went into a shoe store and there were tennis shoes that were like eight hundred dollars. And so I was walking around in the people in there were super excited about these shoes. And I was kind of like, I mean, it's nice. I guess I guess they're going to cool. Would you buy one? I guess I don't get it. Like, I don't understand because there are sort of disprove distressed in like they had looked like shoe on the top is supposed to be artistic, and it was sort of a mash up low. That's like, I don't so take a shoe, and then you make it look worse. And then you throw some glitter on.

He kinda even he gets into some of the things you wouldn't expect like he had a series of movies in a row that were critically panned and kind of flopped he discusses that he talks about why he thinks he got off track from where he normally is in what it is that he like his typical process to get a classic. He discusses the differences between like where he was at the age of twenty three. I think when he did six cents which is fucking insane that he had all that success that early on and how his careers progress since then it's a super. Interesting conversation. I highly recommend it.

What the Fall of Sears Means for Retail

"So Sears was struggling for a while, seven years of losses and even some of its closest competitors. As you mentioned, Macy's n. j. c. Penney what does the fall of Sears mean for their future? You know, we'll penny is very much up in the air. They are struggling. They just they just brought on a new CEO so we'll see how she does, but you know, they've. Cycled through several leaders who have not been able to turn that business around. They're not as weakest Sears. But you know if things don't improve for them, they could be not far behind in a few years and Macy's has struggled to, but they've made a lot of investments in their business and they, they seem to be turning a corner this year. We'll we'll see how that plays out with them. And in your piece, you also talk about companies that have been able to emerge from bankruptcy, although in different ways or smaller ways like PayLess shoe source. And on the other hand, we have companies like toys r. us that seem to be having a tougher time. What can you tell us about the prospects for a reemergence of Sears? You know, a lot of retailers go into bankruptcy thinking they can restructure only to find out that they, you know, it's a death knell for them, and Sears is obviously hoping it can come out smaller and more nimble, but but it raises questions if they do come out with just three hundred stores will have the scale and the buying power to really compete. I'm not really sure what their place in the. World will be when you have WalMart and target and Home Depot with hundreds and thousands of stores. And then you know a very, very scaled-down Sears what is their proposition? And of course, in addition to all those brick and mortar retailers that you mention, obviously the rise of e commerce and the continued dominance of Amazon CEO CEO Eddie Lampert. I think he really saw early on how ecommerce which change retailing and and his hope was that he could turn Sears fast enough to meet those changes. You know, he clearly was not able to do that, but you know, Amazon is a once in a generation company and they have put everybody else on the defensive trying to compete with them. So that continues to be a big challenge. And you mentioned the holiday season a little bit earlier. The Wall Street Journal has been reporting a lot on how the fall of Toys R Us and other big retailers changes the holiday shopping season. How about retailers like Sears? I mean, by the end of this year, we could potentially just have a couple hundred of them. Left. I mean, Sears still has a pretty dominant share in things like tools and appliances. So people are going to, you know, may not be as willing to buy their appliances at Sears because you know who knows about that warranty and we'll series be around in a year. So I think a lot of that market share is going to be up for grabs in apparel and some other areas. You know, I think Sears just looms much larger in the American magic nation than it does

"Payless just filed chapter eleven PayLess chapter eleven PayLess shoe source. Yes, they are closing everything friends. They're really closing everything. Now that they're filing chapter eleven almost hold on. Let me get the stats. Oh, look at that. She reads you the tweet and doesn't click on the link because this is such new news. They aren't telling everything, but they're saying they're closing hundreds of underperforming stores and the United States and Puerto Rico. This isn't a huge surprise. We've talked about them a little bit in the past that they weren't doing. So well that they were deeply and debt, but they were trying to pull themselves out of this chapter eleven doesn't mean that they're gone for good forever. Amen. Adjust means that they have. It's a problem. They may. May be able to restructure. What do you think? Do you think this is completely over Lisa? I hope not because we're going to get uniform shoes for your kids where else do people get school shoes. Besides payless. What did you use to get because I didn't wear uniform? Did you get penny loafers or something like that? Actually, we went to this local shoe shop in town. They weren't loafers. They looked more like boat shoes. They were not flattering school. Uniforms are rarely flattering though, it's Jewish and really like I was in like seventh grade like how was I going to look. But yeah, I guess there are other look, I guess you can go to like stride, right or whatever and get comparable shoes. But at PayLess are so Ford -able and kids grow so fast, and it seems so practical so for that reason like selfishly for the school children of America. I hope that some PayLess stores remain. But I mean, they're going to have a smaller footprint, probably at least until they restructure Lisa. You might have identified a hole in the market. Is this something you want to go after making shoes for school children? Jeff innately, not your. Let's make about jobs. I'm less qualified for. I think being an astronaut and running shoe company or both of the bottom of the list for. I had to try come on. Thanks for getting the wheels turn them. But I think you need to like roll him in a different direction. Push the boss back as I know you are very flattering. But I don't know just to clarify..
