It takes 20 units of effort to make 3 medicine boxes - meaning 6.666 units of effort per box. Average wage is hovering between $4 and $4.25 right now. 4$ * 6.666 = $26.66 per box (slightly cheaper if you work your own company). Price of Medicine Box is $14 right now. I'm running a 13 dollar loss on each box produced, I cannot afford to pay workers. Not sure if it's this bad in any other industry, but I suspect it is.
