Whirlpool Considers Moving Some Production to Mexico
On the day of Georgies visit

http://arkansasbusiness.com/news/headline_article.asp?a...

Whirlpool Corp. on Monday said it might move production of some of its refrigeration products from its Fort Smith plant to a new facility in Mexico an announcement taken as an ominous sign by the states chief economic development officer.

In a news release, Whirlpool said it might move production of some products, particularly in its refrigeration segment, to Mexico, where it plans to expand an existing manufacturing plant. It said it expects to reach a final decision about what production lines it will move sometime in 2005.

that export labor, cutting out jobs for Americans, deserve to be called unAmerican and unpatriotic.
