Polaris please explain why you lay off 500 workers in Osceola less than 2 years ago (most of the plant is now empty) and then want to expand a plant that is less than 20 miles away? That is nuts.. Governor Walker your doing a great job keeping jobs in Wisconsin...

Good news. I hope Minnesotans support them when it's time for a new snowmobile.

So the blowback over sending jobs to Mexico, which the executives proudly stated was to cut labor costs, finally caught up with ya huh?

I never understood why Polaris does not locate jobs closer to the metro area. High gas prices are here to stay. Most people don't want to spend 2-3 hours a day in their car. It seems like they will be missing out on a lot of well qualified candidates.

I wonder if Chip and Amy were congenial to one another? One thing is clear, more jobs are needed and the way to do it is to encourage more development by friendlier business climates.

Things must be in really bad shape when the future hiring of a whole 300 people and a $20 million project is considered worthy enough to have a full length story written about it.
