I would be interested to see how much Polaris makes off of government contracts, which I'm guessing is a large part of their business. I would say if that is the case the company is showing a very poor amount of class and US pride moving it's plant from Osceola to Mexico. I'm sure the Obama administration could care less that its paying for products from Polaris just so they can move to Mexico and destroy the economy of a community in Wisconsin.

Look through your clothing and products---do they all say "Made In America", if not you have no basis to complain..........

USA Gobernut is to expensive to run a business in.
Maybe a tribe would site a Polaris plant in Wisc allowing the plant to operate without all the excess baggage an off res plant carries.

I sincerely hope Polaris doesn't try to market their Victory motorcycles, or snowmobiles, or 4 wheelers, etc., as 'American Made'. The CEO took the coward's way out and rather then review and fix the business model, he sacrificed jobs and the town of Osceola.
Any idiot can outsource, that's not something to strive for.
Let's hope Arctic Cat stays American.

Polaris managment is only concerned about increasing their salaries and the price of their "stock options" by increasing Plorais already high profits by moving the actual production to Mexico and abandoning the workers that made the company's success possible:
