I worked briefly for Bodien in 1989 even at that time their equipment was outdated, management was stale and the two brothers were ready for retirement. Unfortunately there sons were incapable of running anything one was an alcoholic and drug user and the other two were just spoiled rich boys that had no management capability.

Companies like Bodine has been out sourcing work for decades! Has nothing to do with Bridgeports taxes! All over the US it is the same story. US seems to think that the service industry is the way to go.
It has everything to do with taxes. Don't kid yourself. The Dems. have run this state into the ground and have no plan or leadership to correct things. Vote'm all out come next election.

I did business with Bodine in the early 1990s and got to know the business and family owners pretty well. The owners were hard working, good people. They cared very much about their company, their employees and their products. They were also very proud of Bridgeport and Connecticut. I admired them.
