Mexico sends us drugs and illegal immigrants and we send them jobs. What's not mentioned in the article is the HUGE tax break Polaris will be rewarded with.

Confiscatory taxes, out-of-control regulations and regulators, oppressive unions, insane benefits, lawyers making it almost impossible to fire people , rope-a-dope changes from Congress resulting in constant uncertainty, etc., etc. We need to get the gov't OUT OF THE WAY OF BUSINESSES and you'll see jobs like these come back to good old USA. And no, the 'evil private sectors' will not destroy the environment or take advantage of employees. Let's continue to elect Constitutional conservatives @ all levels in 2012 and we'll be well on our way to restoring a free-market, and thus, a more successful economy.

That's how you describe Capitalism gone rampant and the unbridled greed of corporate America, who claim patriotism but are truly hypocrites. The sad thing is that so many people voted back in these same (Republican) people who brought us the recession in the first place. How Polaris can abandon these people in this small town and still sleep at night...unbelievable and chilling.

When jobs go away, who has the money to buy a polaris when we all sell hambugers to each other here? Who wins. I think no one. Best Buy out sourced. Every one is outsourcing. Now, where does the discretinary income come from as the buyer pool gets smaller? Did they consider that? How about a town losing a large amount of jobs. I am upbeat because the consumer is smart enough to tell Polaris to shove it. I will.

Funny how the price of a product never seems to drop after production is moved out of the country.
