Why would anybody lose their jobs? nike WANTS to make a shoddy product. That has been their business model since the very start..
I could see an argument that they want to make the product as cheaply as possible, which would correlate with being shoddy, but I don't think any company intentionally makes a crappy product.
And, I would add, Nike does make some pretty sweet product. Other than Adidas, they're the only company that makes a wool-component running top, their spikes are great, the Pegasus is a great shoe, the Elite is finally good again, the Structure is gaining traction in run specialties, and the Streak LT is one of the best 5k flats on the market.
