“As part of our continuous strive to become more efficient, transferring our awnings production to our existing facility in Mexico will ensure that our manufacturing meets our customer’s requirements for lead time, quality and cost.”. The problem isn’t undocumented people coming to America and taken jobs away ; but greedy corporations and demanding shareholders moving the jobs to Mexico and other foreign places for cheaper labor cost... Is this what trump meant by saying over and over again, “Mexico will pay for the wall”?


Your Trump Derangement Symptoms are very obvious to see Joe. Dometic is a European based company, globalist by nature just like you and the rest of Europe. Probably the recent increasing wage scale in this area are driving them away. I remember when they put that plant in production right after the 2008 downturn they were hiring at close to minimum wage and have not kept up with wage increases in the area, so no big loss here.
