Competing with the Chinese

Wee Boy: Dave do you think I should have a shorter school year?
Me: No. Actually there’s states that’d like to have kids go all year round
Wee Boy: Why?
Me: So you can be on the same level as the Chinese kids your age
Wee Boy: why do I have to be at the same level as the Chinese?
Me: Because you’ll have to compete with them for jobs when you get older.
Wee Boy: Dave, there’s no way the Chinese will take my jobs. They can’t even speak our language. You can’t work at the video game store like that
