The Brady Corp., informed about 90 employees of Electromark in Wolcott, Wayne County, on Monday their jobs are being relocated to Mexico.

According to Wayne County Industrial Development Agency Executive Director Peg Churchill, the company announced it will be closing the facility in Dec. 2014, with a handful of customer service employees being moved earlier in June.

“We have a number of people locally - economic development team and elected leaders - working in hopes to reverse the decision to close and move jobs out of New York,” said Churchill, adding that Electromark is a major employer in the Wolcott area. It’s closing means the loss approximately 90 jobs.

“The area of our region has also recently been notified that the state is closing the Butler prison in 2014, which also means a loss of jobs for the Wolcott and Butler communities,” Churchill said.

The prison closure means the loss of another 130 jobs in the area in 2014, she said.

More jobs leaving the welfare state. I wonder why? Could it have anything to do with taxes,fees, regulations, high cost of utilities and an @sshole governor to boot?

We need more prison space. I understand closing businesses, but a prison makes no sense. Where will the house all these drunk white drivers Rhonda keeps identifying?

it's due to the NAFTA law signed by William Jefferson Clinton where greedy CEO's can become billionaires by paying low wages and no benefits to people desperate in other countries make $5-10 a day.

Also called "business". If they can get it made cheaper, with higher profit margins, why not? Makes good business sense. It's all about the Return on Investment. That, combined with NYS taxes is the perfect storm.

Employees are pawns in the game, with no leverage.

I'm sure the state and Wolcott will offer some tax free sweetheart deal, but they will still move.

Do your homework.
NAFTA was a Republican idea, negotiations and frame work started under the Regan administration.
Clinton and the Dems fought against it and trimmed several of the most damaging provisions from it.
Ask a Canadian how worker what they think of NAFTA.......

Apparently you did not do your homework.

Democratic candidates Senators Hillary Clinton — whose husband signed the treaty in 1993 — and Barack Obama both blamed NAFTA for lost American manufacturing jobs and suggested that terms might be renegotiated to include higher labor and environmental standards. The idea would be to stem the "race to the bottom" among companies seeking the cheapest costs of doing business, ultimately encouraging them to keep jobs in place in the U.S.

Companies do what is in their best interest, without regard for how it impacts employees (even though they usually say how concerned they are - they're not).

NYS drives companies out, and no one is moving in. Even with the cutesy TV ads, nothing. Employers know that NY State is not business friendly. Jobs aren't coming here.

No that would be you......

Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1986 among the three nations, the leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. The signed agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch.

More new people entering the welfare system, lost taxes and jobs. NYS needs to do a massive overhaul, and quickly.

No new businesses are coming our way - except low paying retail stores. We need Intel or Qualcomm, not Von Maur.

This state is becoming a wasteland of closed businesses.
