So did Black and Decker ---They wont move offshore. They pride themselves about being made locally.
A lot of the Training centers in the areas, also have partnerships with Ideal, Klein, Greenlee, and Milwaukee, as they are all local.
While its great for them, I can't imagine it is much of a pay raise for the ones here in rockford
I told the story of my ex-employee that is in prison, worked in an AC Delco rewind shop in prison making .75 or .85 cents an hour. AC Delco shut the doors and moved to Mexico, if we can't compete with prison labor at .75-.85 cents an hour it is a lost cause.We had a fasco plant that wanted to unionize the union lost and the plant still went to mexico.
Nothing against Greenlee but I am tooled out for a while.While i don't doubt that true Brian, labor had one small ray of sunshine break through the clouds of globalism @ Greenlee
I'm going to go buy something Greenlee this week , consider it a protest purchase.....
