ARRey asks: The real question may be once Polaris has established its new Indian-related production in Osceola, how long will it take to clone it in Mexico?

Good thing Amy, Mark & Michelle are pushing that $700M bridge to WI so more companies like Polaris can move jobs over there. Real smart you guys. And MN pays more than 1/2? Me thinks Mr Walker ate your lunch on that deal.

Ooh, nice PR job. Ship your jobs to Mexico readily admitting you're poking the American worker in the eye because you can get Mexican labor for $.10 on the dollar. Now you're creating "american" jobs. Do you REALLY think American workers are that stupid?

Put Polaris out of business. Buy Arctic Cat. Fully American Made.

Another feather in the hat for the fiscal restraint and sound labor policies of the GOP. The well off get what they want and you workers get a job! So go to work, you workers, and quit complaining or we give the jobs to those who want to work for even less. You workers need to be grateful for the job that you have. All workers must remember that they are powerless to try to stop the economic engine that is the United States of America and those workers who try to do so will be crushed. So workers, enjoy your labors knowing that the GOP is looking out for you.

I must be posting on the wrong article, I thought story read Polaris was adding 89 jobs not eliminating 89 jobs. Oh and didn't know Arctic Cat made motorcycles, employed as many people and put as much more money into the Minnesota economy as Polaris. Shut the evil Polaris down!!! I think I lost 5 IQ points reading these comments.

I'm surprised Polaris hasn't move all their jobs to Iowa and Wis. Also suprised they moved GEM out of ND.
