Does that include shoveling more money to Evergreen Solar so they can finish sending all the jobs to China?

What about Proctor and Gamble, who outsources Sonoco Packaging on Devens. P&G is taking the whole Devens operation plus it's Boston operation to Mexico by the end of the year? That's at least 1000 jobs just from Devens alone that will gone.

Sunoco was manufacturing products for Gillette. These companies all are greedy. The US should barr the products of these anti American worker companies from cirulating their products inside of the US. Then maybe it will give American born small companies a chance to make it.
It is Americans whom have supported these companies and whom have made them into the giants that they are today! Shame on Gillettes also!!!!

This is all political fodder for all the sheeple who are stuck on stupid... Devalue "yes we can" Patrick has helped this state live up to its sobriquet Taxachusetts.

After all the rule-bending political shenanigans Patrick did trying to fill Teddy's seat, and then ramrodding Kirk's appointment to the Senate to help ObamaCare, now he thinks the majority of people will just forget.

I expect that the morons that are unhappy living in a well-run state with historically high job growth will be packing their things for AZ right now.

The article forgets to mention that about $50K of the $160K added in March were temporary census hires.
And of course there is that nasty detail that the US government has spent tens of trillions of dollars just to make things "less bad". Unfortunately, the coming sovereign debt crisis/currency crisis which will come about as the result of this reckless spending, is going to make the Great Recession look like a picnic.
But hey, Let's party like it's 1999 or 2007.

Well-run State? What state do you live in?.And what goes on in Arizone is their business, not yours. Why don't you volunteer 75% of your income to support the lazy vermin that does not want to work.Better yet, move to Arizone and vote to make changes there. That way you will actually have the right to stick your nose in their business.

You speak much truth here. The debt, medical costs, social security, etc. make the United States looking more like a second tier economy like that of western europe today. Evergreen and Gillette are two examples of corporate greed who vacate Devens. Kind of a bummer.
