You seem exposed as someone who makes things up.
It would be easy to put this to rest.
Admit that you lied about that, or back it up with where you read it and away we go.

like Polaris is the only company that has ever done this! Toughen up people, I am on my third time of this type of thing and making less than ever with crappier benefits than ever. This is the new world. Get used to it. You might spend some time without a job. Boo Hoo, join the rest of us. I am just glad to be working.

The state needs to assist existing Osceola businesses with expansion. One such company is Renteck. They have contracts to produce parts for fortune 500 companies, but until now, obtaining financing for expansion has been difficult, because banks are not lending. The banks are getting cheap money through the Fed and then letting it earn much haigher rates, without lending it out. Thats why the bank profits have been so high in the last 6 months. Wisconsin needs to assist those businesses they already have and then seek new ones!
GE Capitol has an ad on Cable TV where a dunebuggy driven by the Polaris CEO is running over sand danes with the voice-over saying how GE Capital is financing American companies, so the can move their factories to Mexico!
