Some time back I came across a post which I can't find now. The post's author described a Sales person that came to him and said that he would bring in new customers if the machinist would give him 10% of the gross profits.
As I recall the Machnist was hurting because customers were going to china. So he agreed. The sales dude did in fact bring customer and in the end, the 10% was a small price to pay....so he said.
My question is, does anyone know which tread I'm talking about or who this sales dude was?
