I remember in the 1980’s, when I was a preteen, sitting at my Daddy’s feet while we watched the evening news. The topic of discussion that night was this thing called “outsourcing.” The Corporations were talking about how great it was because of how much money they’d save by paying lower labor costs, etc. and the shareholders were all for it, because if profits went up, share prices went up.
“That sounds great,” I said.
“You wait,” my father replied. “When you’re my age (which I am now) people in America won’t be able to afford to buy what those companies are making, no matter how cheap they are, because no one in America is going to have a job.”
My, my, my… Once again, my father’s wisdom has been proven with time…
Folks, as Donald Trump is preaching from the hilltops, outsourcing has destroyed our economy and it has to stop. Today, according to online tabloid America’s Freedom Fighters, a conglomerate who collects news stories from other outlets and puts them together as their own, just like us and everyone else in the blogging business, is claiming that five more American companies are moving overseas. According to the tabloid, those companies are:
1. Fiat Chrysler- Beginning in 2017, Fiat Chrysler will drive into Mexico and Canada completely withdrawing all car manufacturing from the United States.
2. Nabisco- The maker of Oreos, Chips Ahoy, and Nilla Wafers invested $130 million in a production plant in Mexico back in March, 2016. In the process, the company laid off 600 workers at its Chicago plant.3. Burger King- The Whopper has a new home. Burger King moved its headquarters to Canada by merging with the Canadian company Tim Horton’s Inc. back in August, 2014.
4.(UTEC)- UTEC makes products for the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry, and will be closing its plants in Indiana in order to move to Mexico. The company will lay off 700 people by 2018.
5. Carrier- The air conditioning manufacturer is getting some fresh air in Mexico, leaving its Indiana base behind. The company will lay off 1,400 workers across Indiana, and will record a total loss of 2,700 jobs overall in the state.
Better vote for Trump folks, before it’s too late.
