Tony Caldeira is a man on a mission - much like Mary Portas was a few weeks back. He wants to create a British workforce who can defeat the economic might of China - using only cushions. Caldeira, who like many other businessmen makes his products in China, where costs and wages are cheap. However, with Chinese staff now demanding much higher pay, the executive embarks on an experiment to bring manufacturing back to Britain by opening a factory in Kirkby, near Liverpool. But he has a lot to do. While his new supervisor and ma-chinist set to work training the recruits in the art of sewing, Tony tries to inspire them to commit to the company, despite the fact they are only earning the minimum wage.
