19. They have a big plant in Puerto Rico
Edited on Wed Apr-29-09 11:55 AM by More_liberal_than_mo
Back in the 80's I worked for a satellite communications company that provided Baxter's intra company data network. I had to service their P.R. plant. I casually found out that the reason for using this location was the lax labor laws in Puerto Rico. They could poison their employees without getting into trouble there and still claim their products were "made in the USA".
