Mark, you don't understand business and you getting involved will only make things worse. It just makes sense for a business to move operations to Wisconsin that is far more business friendly than Minnesota. It's past noon, maybe you should just have another drink.

Just tax them some more Mark? Maybe they will stay. Dayton just doesn't understand business, but how could he? Never had to run anything in his life...

Gov Googlie Eye will be begging him to keep the business in MN and not move to the evil Wisconsin and will promise him the party will do this and that and in the end Hutchinson Tech will be gone from Minnesota completely, either taxed and restricted out of business or fed up and moved on.

As Governer Walker said, Wisconsin is open for business. We have a few cowardly senators who run for the hills when things get tough, but other than that the new tax structures will have businesses happily move from MN to WI.

One less corporation for the taxpayers to support. See insane partisan rhetoric can survive on both sides, fools. But since I was joking and you are not...........

Let me see if I got this right......"we" elect a person who openly promises to tax just about any wage earner (or business) out of the state. Then he does exactly what he said he was going to do and the businesses pack up and move. Why the shock and surprise? I hope that all the employees at Hutchinson that votes for Mr. Dayton are happy with their choice now. I don't want to see any of the "pro Dayton" employees crying that they no longer have a job. You voted for him, he did exactly what he said he was going to do, the businesses responded exactly how they said they would, and now you act surprised????? I don't want to hear any Dayton supporters cry when their job moves out of state. You voted for it, now live with the consequences. Crying about it only makes you a hypocrite. Welcome to Detroit........

Yes, Mr. Dayton, the State can do something. LOWER TAXES YOU IDIOT! Quit trying to raise taxes on those that create jobs by produce products for the intent of making a profit!!! Get a clue!

HTI closed up their plant in business friendly, no tax South Dakota before this move. And our current tax structure was set up long before the current administration. Wisconsin is just a stop before all of their manufacturing leaves the US.

I would like to be a fly on the wall in that meeting. I wonder what our [NOT ELECTED BY A MAJORITY} govenor would say to this once thriving company. Let's see if he can mumble his way through this one. Let's all hold hands and go to our happy place, where you all work and the gov will play with your hard earned cash. You are the evil rich, pay, pay, pay your fair share! We want it all.
