We're all so sad to see more jobs going to China (and other countries) yet we keep buying (thus supporting) products made outside the USA.

All those who've supported the current U.S. administration, which is hell bent on the growth of "green jobs" and clean energy, can share the blame as they watch the U.S. kiss goodbye to even more "green" jobs in the future. It's high time you guys did your own research on what this inexplicable focus on green jobs will do to this economy...please, well in advance of the next presidential election.

Gee, we were told government stimulus packages will increase jobs. This is simply a microcosm of what is happening nationwide. The liberals and their ilk are causing damage to this country although the commonwealth of Massachusetts citizens fail to see it by voting Democrats.

and speaking of green jobs - we heared Pepperell's newly elected selectman is moving his business from Pepperell to Devens. probably just a rumor from executive session?
