Stoughton Trailers To Reopen Plant
Stoughton Trailers plans to get back into the business of producing domestic rail containers and truck chassis with up to 300 employees at its closed Evansville plant.
The new product lines also could mean adding jobs at the company's plants in Stoughton and Brodhead.
Illinois Company Relocating To Wisconsin
A border war has broken out as an Illinois company decides to take its business to Wisconsin. Governor Scott Walker made the announcement Thursday morning.
It seems Wisconsin is aggressively trolling for new businesses and new jobs. A cold call from Wisconsin's lieutenant governor started a dialogue. And, from a business perspective, the company's owner says it was an offer too good to pass up.
It's amazing how business flourishes when unions are not involved in the process.
I know, it's only two businesses out of many. But it is a start and hopefully businesses that went down because the union wouldn't budge can reconsider reopening their doors. And hopefully more businesses will bail out of Illinois where taxes continue to rise, while programs are not cut and unions write their own tickets.
It's not that I wish the people of Illinois any ill will. It's just that I cannot stand states that refuse to look out after their citizens, while bending over backwards for union thugs and every other thug-like special interest group that makes noise.
