Keep an eye on Nogales, Mexico. The KC plant there is expanding and rumor is the Fullerton Mill equipment is moving there. The corporation is taking advantage of Trump tax cuts to fund the 10 mill closures. How is that making America great again? Corporate greed and the Trump tax plan seems to be working in the rich mans favor.
Bottom line... corporations, if given a psyhological human diagnosis, are psychopathic- and since they are absurdly given legal personhood,it is fitting.
So much for the tax break being a net benefit for all, while the everyday worker, aka wealth CREATORS, might be enjoying a whopping 40 bucks extra per check, the jackasses who benefit from their labor by recycling wealth that never actually leaves the top .1%, are making more in unearned income than an entire plant of workers will ever see in their lifetime. In a functional democracy with a less parasitic economy, the tax breaks would have come with caveats, and worker protections, particularly those being employed by multibillion dollar multinational companies, would be in place. Trickle down economics is a gimmick, especially when the wealth class is not mandated to invest in its workers or its country. Simply “incentivizing” them to create jobs or raise wages is like giving a teenager a raise on allowance and then hoping that is an incentive for them to help more around the house- only a small percentage of mature conscientous kids is likely to put two and two together, but give the kid the allowance and tell them to continue to receive the higher amount they must do x,y, and z- or similarly, maybe more effective,if they do not do xyz they will not only not receive the higher wage, they will be required to pay some of their allowance back. Could you IMAGINE the corporate back lash??? They might rebel by sending all their jobs overseas to exploit foreign labor and still yet be able to sell those products back to American people they screwed over with impunity. Oh- thats right, they do that regardless!
The lack of working and middle class solidarity, as well as the 40 year sustained attacked on organized labor is just as responsible for workers plight. Divide the people on religious issues and race and then they do not noticed they are getting bleeped in the bleep! Wake up Americans! Lock yourselves in the damn factory with all the equiptment and such, call your local legislators and leaders, the media, and tell that offshoring or closing company they do as they please but you will be taking the factory and running it democratically, and demand the government issue a loan for operations. Lets see how they company and the politicians enjoy the bad press. Look at history and how any gains by the working class were won. Certainly not by relying on corporate owned politicans alone.... fight!
