Small business Jpete, small business, many create many jobs, if successful they are either bought out or run out of business by big business. What happened to your employer were they large or small? Besides being able to get rid of you
, why did they head South at a time when many others are starting to come back. I was just at any open house tour of a local mid range business that is doing real well for itself, not bad for a molded fibreglass plant, going strong for 60 years.
Ah, cheap shots. Keep 'em coming bartender!
It wasn't me the company was trying to get rid of, it was the union that kept pushing penny ante crap until the company got fed up.
It was easy to see coming. Corporate like to have manufacturing near it's customers and last I checked, there weren't many oil refineries in RI.
Simple really. Kill several birds with one stone. Give the union the high hard one, save on shipping, and onerous taxes in RI plus high utility costs.
Whatever it cost to hire the riggers to move the machines will be made up in the first year. And they had the property sold before they even finished moving out.
Truth be told, I don't think the work ever made it to Mexico City. Last I heard, my machine was stuck at the border because Homeland Security deemed it capable of making a weapon of mass destruction.
I don't know about that but I made it go BOOM once or twice!
