    It says they are closing, not moving.

    Like big other American corporations that are getting huge tax breaks thanks to people who voted in the Republicians, they say its ‘closing’ but will move those good paying jobs to lower paying India, and China.

      Not true in this case. Don’t always make stupid assumptions.

  4. Clarify says:

    Jobs are going to Eau Claire, they have been expanding the facilities there for a while getting ready for it. Has nothing to do with “Republicans”.

    Lower corporate tax in, well pretty much anywhere but Minnesota. More profitable in said Wisconsin.

    We have one of the highest if not the highest commercial property tax rates in the country. A simple commercial building valued at $340,000 pays more then $8,000 per year in property taxes in Minneapolis. Also any equipment installed for manufacturing/production is property taxed. Sales tax also has to be paid on consumables and equipment when purchased. Our corporate tax rate and workers comp is also higher then most other states. And guess what the unemployment tax rate in Minnesota went up! It does not make sense to manufacturer anything here.
