Creating Jobs

FREEPORT, Ill. 10-26-2012
Bain Capital-owned Sensata plans to close the Freeport plant in December and outsource the plant's 170 jobs to China. Workers at the plant have been
training their Chinese replacements, who have been flown to Illinois by the company.
Created by Bain in 2006, Sensata develops, manufactures, and sells sensors and controls for major auto manufacturers such as Ford and General Motors.

Sensata is the old sensor division of Texas Instruments. They dropped most of the useful products soon after. Another case of a business that was closing, and venture capital tried to save it. Only a complete fool thinks Romney still controls Bain Capital.

Most importantly, this is normal economic activity and not something sinister. Looking to lower costs is normal business activity.
Businesses are not charities, and their job is to make money, not "create jobs" that cost more than they could obtain elsewhere. When businesses try to present themselves as charitable benefactors of "American people", this is just laughable.

In this case, they'll be located closer to their customers. Mechanical temperature sensors are being replaced with electronic sensors, and the market is shrinking. A market that never employed more than a couple hundred people in the US. I agree, we need more on shore manufacturing but some markets just aren't worth it at this time.

    Yep. "We shall make electricity so cheap, only the rich will burn candles." Thomas Edison.     What I mean is that , for better or worse - the mass market no longer supports the "old way" - no matter who good it might have been. Those who don't want "new and improved" - or for whom "new and improved" doesn't work - are either out of luck, or have to spend big bucks to get what works. -- pyotr Go not to the Net for answers, for it will tell you Yes and no.

No need for buggy whips, when people don't use horse drawn buggies anymore.
The B.O. ad bitching about Bain closing that Marion, Indiana Ampad factory never mentions that people don't use as many legal pads and notepads as they used to. Businesses use computers, so they should blame Bill gates for that plant closing. How often do you see tractor feed printer paper these days? Green bar printouts are rare. The last I saw was in 2001.

    True. But the S&M trade pays a premium for them. The whips, not the buggies.

    I still have two boxes of printer paper, one green bar, one bond. tractor feed - unopened. Since ..? 95? There's another open box of the bond, which I use to supply paper for the Sunday school kids.
    Interesting thing, the tractor feed paper, intended for use with ink, and not lasers, "works" much better for hand written missives. So I essentially I have two stocks of paper: printing paper, and writing paper.

I'll have to take your word on that.
In any case, they don't really 'need' them. :)

I have a couple boxes of used greenbar from a printing company. They used it to print proofs for new books. After it was proofread & edited, it was tossed back in the box. I used to give it to kids to color on the back side. They loved the wide carriage paper. :)

I use tractor feed paper to make scratch pads to carry in my shirt pocket in place of the cigarette box I used to carry to write notes on. I take about 3/8" pile and staple it to a heavier backing then cut it on the band saw. In my case, 8 pads 2 i/2 x 4 3/4". I know, how many scratch pads can one person use? but I have a friend who is a girl guide leader who will take as many as I will donate to hand out to the girls as an example of re-purposing a product that a lot of people would dsicard. Backing card comes from report covers I got at yard sales, but I have used cerial box board.

Mold making has been returning to the US over the past 5 or so years.
Seems as though the Chicoms tend to fuck up molds pretty badly.

The most insiduous form of government control is through regulations put on businesses. By legislating controls, invisible to most consumers, businesses are forced to act as unpaid bill collectors, snitches and do a thousand other unpalatable things that government wants or needs done but is too afraid to do themselves.
