    78 Eau Claire, Wisconsin Jobs Going To Thailand

    Hutchinson Tech is moving hard drive production to Thailand. No idea when the 480 remaining Hutchinson employees in Eau Claire will be given the pink slips. Gee, aren't these high tech jobs and tech is the future? All together now, "Scott Walker where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"

    • By the way - where are the 5,000,000 "GREEN JOBS" Obama promised during the 2008 campaign? Don't remember that promise? I do - I saw the commercials at least 250 times during that summer every night. Where are those jobs, huh? Only "GREEN JOBS" I remotely heard of were from a 2 week training program / lib political photo op that taught about 20 guys how to blow insulation into attics locally. Where are the 5,000,000 GREEN JOBS?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Can always rely on you libs only telling half the story. Hutchinson is a company in deep trouble and just happens to have a plant in Wisconsin. Let's look at the rest of the story below:

      The cuts announced this week will leave about 600 Hutchinson jobs in Eau Claire, said Mike Schatz, the city's economic development administrator. He said it's been known for some time that Hutchinson would move assembly work from Eau Claire to Thailand, and that the jobs in the city lasted longer than expected.

      Eau Claire expects to regain about 100 manufacturing jobs, meanwhile, when Riverside Machine & Engineering completes a planned purchase of part of the Hutchinson complex and locates operations there, Schatz said.

      Hutchinson has lost tens of millions of dollars annually for six years running. The losses range from $35 million last year to $168 million in 2009

      How about the 100 new manufacturing jobs.
