Another proud American company bites the dust, at least here in America.
Daimler Trucks North America has decided to move a lot of its operations down to Mexico. Some of it will go to South Carolina, but a lot of it is going outside the country.
I know I’m going to hear from the union folks who say, “That’s the fault of those evil, greedy corporations.” Well, I don’t consider myself greedy because I work for a paycheck and I’ll bet you don’t either.
I want those companies to stay in business and stay healthy. There is no way for them to stay healthy working inside an environment with one of the highest tax rates in the world, one in which health care has become unaffordable largely because of government mandates and trial lawyers and people like that.
Why don’t we get back to making America a competitive place for a company to operate so that we can build things and make things here and do it efficiently. Let’s get the unions to change their rules and the government to change its rules as well. We will be able to keep jobs right here in North America.
