Prefabricated’s Prefabricated Wooden Homes announced that they will let its entire staff of 1,000 chimpanzees go.
Pete Prefabricated, long-time Wuxi Expat and owner of Prefabricated’s Prefabricated Wooden Homes, said his decision to hire over 1,000 chimpanzees to work in a his Prefabricated Wooden Home factory in the Wuxi New District was a big mistake. "I have always taken pride the in high quality and slightly lower prices of our products, but I wanted to do better. I wanted our prices to be substantially lower! The only way to do this, I thought, was to hire Chimpanzees who would work long hours for peanuts and bananas! But I am afraid they work was of substandard quality and almost as bad as the work I had done when I hired some Ontario, Canada Expats for a month!"
Prefabricated told the WCE blog that each chimpanzee would get three month’s supply of bananas for severance pay and a bus ride to the Wildlife Safari Park in the 1912 Bar District of Wuxi, China.
