I decided to exchange them. Revolve is being cool about it, so I figure I'll get boots free of defects
I don't believe they are mass produced. I believe the stitching is done by hand (based on a video of the Wolverine factory). They aren't cheap boots - they cost $340.Part of me thinks: "They're hand-stitched, and this is just a quirk"and the other part thinks: "This is sloppy, and will bother me in the future"
The picture above shows the inside stitching of the right shoe. There's also one unfilled hole on the outside stitching on the other shoe.
See the photo. There are two extra holes in my new Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots that I just received in the mail. I'm not sure if this is return-worthy. What do you think? Too nitpicky?
People with master's degrees in engineering seem to get snapped up pretty quick by industry

Well, this one might be successful. Teaching assistants are already unionized here,...
Does anyone have any experience fighting unionization? I'd like to hear about your experiences. For background, I'm a graduate student supported by a research assistantship at a large public university. There is a currently a movement to unionize graduate research assistants university-wide. For a number of reasons I am against it, and I want to do something.
