Wrong picture is with this article. That is Menlo also another contractor with Hewlett Packard. Sonoco employees were told the company decided to move elsewhere. Guess where that might be.

Wheres bill bolling the commonwealths jobs czar when you need him. Do we give more tax dollars to companies who come here and after a few years they pack up and leave?
Must've been something cucinelli said about gays, naw thats not it; could it be the Confederate History thingy from goober Mcdonnell. Maybe they are just feed up with this racist state.
How can the south rise again when the odds are against them..........racism must be defeated.

Companies do not care about state politics and programs. They care about the bottom line and until they impose expensive tariffs on American Companies that import goods and services, the jobs will continue to go overseas or to Mayheeko. Nothead, has is that hopey/changey thing working out for you? I'm betting that Obama is too upity to know you. I am hoping for a non-career politician for President in 2012. Vote the career politicians out

How is that hopey/changey thing working? Companies continue to shed jobs. Oh but unemployment is only 9.9%. Truth is that unemployment is 17-18%. This isn't the change that many voted for.

The change that people hoped for is the change that people railed against. The party of "NO" lead the "massive resistance" to hope an change.

See how american companies treat american workers and now they will treat the mexican workers even worse. All teabagging companies want cheap labor all in the name of profits.
Look who picks up the tab to provide gov't assistance to those who are laid off.
SOme of you hating teabaggers will now feel what its like to be unemployed or unemployable for the first time in your teabagging life. What do they say about "karma." I felt your pain was about to HIT!!!!!!!!!!1

A lot of hardworking folks in that plant. Had nothing to do with their productivity or the management of the site. Had everything to do with another company telling HP they could do it cheaper outside of the USA.

We'll fix that company won't we/ would the new impending Arizona racist law have anything to do with it. Some of the mexicans won't have to cross over the border looking for work, they will now have those Sonoco jobs.
Thanks you racist teabaggers you've just shoved more jobs across the border.
