The last two paragraphs of the article are the key to everything going on the economy. Companies don't care about product or people anymore. All they do is cater to Wall Street investors who want more profits and higher stock prices to enhance their portfolios. In order to make the company stock look good, they'll cut workers and threaten to relocate to other states or overseas to enhance their bottom line. And the government can't do a thing to change this. So long as big money investors call the shots, the working people will be on the losing end of the deal.

I think they will close the Kansas plant and move it here. The indicators are looking possible.
