<quoted text> I think this outsourcing of Sensata Technologies, smacks of greed...Over $500,000 in one quarters profit this year, yet still scheduled for China...Imagine a 180 employee plant, clearing over $2 million annually, but it's not enough? Those are some hungry stockholders....
How many stockholders are there of Sensata Technologies stock? Again, who are you to determine how much is to much for these stockholders? If you were a stockholder and this stock was part of your 401 portfolio, wouldn't you want as much profit as possible? Like Mitt pointed out to Obama in one of the debates, we all have stock in a company in China whether you know it or not.

My bad Mike, I actually thought you had read the origin of why I posted the site. I'm sorry for assuming you had read why I had posted the site, but as usual you didn't and it's my fault. Does this blame game thing work well for you in the real world?
Bacon, now you know Mike requires us to provide a link in order to prove our facts. Then you must tell him what the link says. Then you must tell him what to look for in the link and how it relates to your point. Then, and only then, is when he MIGHT read your post and link. If you don't follow these three easy steps then your post is invalid!

Emlu, could'nt help but think of you as I pulled out Grandma's old oil lamp:) I am just south of Asheville, winds have been 60-65 mph. Went to the grocery store, the wind had picked up the buggy corrals and tossed them like tumble weeds. About 1500 here without power. Hope all of you are safe from harms way. My prayers go out to all in this storms path. This one is likely to make history!
I had to run up to Hendersonville this morning on buisness. I will agree, the wind on Saluda and the Green River Gorge was no joke! All I could do to keep the ole F-350 dually on the road!

<quoted text>Did that happen in Massachusetts? Nope, so why do you think it will happen now?
If you wish to see the results of Obama care, just look at the results of Romney care in Massachusetts.
Clearly you do not know how to look at history and learn from it. Common for republicans.
Make sure you are clear Mike. The house and senate of Mass was all democrat with Romney being the only repub. Romney veto'd quite a bit from the left with them only to override his veto.

That is how well it is working in Doucheachusetts.

<quoted text>There is no nation state that will surrender in the war on terror.
But in the case of Iraq, it is not so much about terrorism, but insurgents. Not exactly the same.
The failed strategy of attack Bush had in Iraq, created an insurgency right off the bat and thus it flourished to numbers that could not be eradicated.
Bush was told by some high level advisers to send more troops at first. He ignored the advisers. As you would say, Bush was in charge.
And as with any dynamic situation, strategy and tactics change to meet the needs. You do know we won the Iraq war, right?

Whether or not I beleive that abortion is murder is irrelevant. I did see part of the interview with Mourdock when he was ask about the rape of a 13 year old girl. It is very evident to me where he stands. We all know that rape is an act of violence. Rape is not God's will, we were given freewill. Barrbaric as it may sound but, hanging is to good for a bastard like that. How the hell could we possilbly ask that a 13 year old child become a mother after being violated in such a way?
What could we expect a young female's outlook to be on marriage, sex and family after such a traumatic experience?
Pro I seek feedback from you most of all because you have stated that you have three daughters!
I agree with Bacon, there would be one less scumbag allowed to breath on the taxpayer's dime! As far as my opinion on abortion, that's another topic completely.

<quoted text>OK I guess if you do not allow employees any vacation or holiday time ever, that would add up. I see you failed to dispute any of my points.
Well there is your first mistake. If you are an owner of a business, it has to remain that. Business. Trying to introduce the human element into business decisions is a mistake because it detracts from the primary goal. Profit.

"And again, I would love to see a statistic that shows your claim of workers refusing to work more hours."

You answered this question yourself with your above posting.

"Working someone more than that does not increase profits. Overtime cost the business more, not less."

The cost of goods sold includes labor costs. If a company increases production, it will incur other costs such as overtime for its current workers, as well as a cost to hire and train additional workers. The cost of each additional worker is higher than the cost of the company's current workers. Additional workers may get in the way of the current workers, reducing productivity. In laymon's terms, your staff has to be efficient and an increase of staff detracts from profits and revenue. Overtime is factored in but you can do more with less, given your employees are efficient and effective. If they are not, fire fire fire.

"quoted text>2080? What is that number from or for? Last I checked, a forty hour work week was the norm. Working someone more than that does not increase profits. Overtime cost the business more, not less.
And if you do find a way to explain working more hours increases profit, why is that good for America? Profit for a company if earned on decreasing money for workers does not equate to an increase of the economy. Workers spending money can increase the economy.
And again, I would love to see a statistic that shows your claim of workers refusing to work more hours.
I would like to see more money spent on education and sciences."

<quoted text>Was that the result in Massachusetts? Nope.
Many businesses already give health insurance. It pretty much comes out of the wages of the worker anyway. It makes for good business. That is why they do it without being forced.
True, the employee isn't forced, but his employer is. Unwise choice. The employer signs the paychecks. The employer hires and fires.

Just out of curiosity, what is the connection in your mind between diversity and outsourcing jobs?
<quoted text>
Oh come on man. What couldn't be more diverse than an American company creating jobs at a plant in Mexico or China or India to keep employee wages down and avoid the taxes back to America. That is just business. And in business you turn a profit for the stockholders and investors, not the employees.

Why am I telling you this, you already know it is about profit and revenue. Because your employees get what you get in the form of benefits. Just not the pay, right?

Obama and Biden all have private investments or problematic issues that the media dare not bring up because of leftist bias.

I couldn't agree more. I didn't start a buisness to make friends, provide others with jobs, to put food on others tables, etc....it was to make money! The rest are byproducts.

The biggest misconception my few employees have is that "it's their job", which is usually the case with most people. I occasionally have to remind them, I sign the front of the check, they sign the back!

have no fear. Mike and TSF or AZ will imply, infer and or geniuinely believe that there is a human side to business. And there is when dealing with customers. But that is as far as it goes. TSF will tell you I am correct if he truly is in business for himself and wants to turn a profit.

Just because you take the human element out of making decisions that potentially affect revenue or profits is not the same as being chordial when getting coffee for the team in the morning.
